From Data to Models
New Bioinformatics Methods and Tools for Data-Driven, Predictive Dynamic Modelling in Biotechnological Applications



This summer school will give an introduction to Gaussian processes (GP), followed by state-of-the-art topics (multioutput GP, sparse GP, global optimisation, latent force models). Talks will be combined with workshops, with ample time for discussions.

May 12 to May 15

This EBI-BioPreDyn course will provide a detailed overview of state-of-the-art modelling methods and tools in computational systems biology, focusing especially on dynamic (mechanistic) models.

Jun 10 to Jun 13

Week-long intensive introduction to Gaussian processes and function approximation in machine learning, with both workshops and invited lectures.

Jan 21 to Jan 23

This workshop, sponsored by the EU FP7 project BioPreDyn, is aimed at current and prospective users of the COPASI modeling and simulation package for system biology. The workshop is directed both at beginners as well as advanced users and there will be sessions directed at each of these groups (in parallel if needed). The workshop will also be an important means for the COPASI development team to collect feedback from users about improving the software.
