COMBINE & de.NBI Tutorial: Modelling and Simulation Tools in Systems Biology



Dates: Sunday, August 6th, 2017 (9:00 - 18:00)
Location: Blacksburg, Virginia (USA)

Hosted by: HITS - Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies


The participation in the tutorial is free of charge.

This tutorial workshop is a satellite of the 18th International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB).
Participants will learn how to set up computer models of biological systems (e.g. metabolic or signalling networks) using experimental kinetic data and how to simulate them in different systems biology platforms. Hands-on sessions, lectures and software demonstrations will be included, providing attendees with the necessary skills to access experimental kinetics data from available resources, to assemble computer models with these data, and finally to simulate the generated models using simulation tools. Also handling and exchange of biological models based on existing community standards will be demonstrated along with the basic principles of the underlying standard formats.

The topics will include:

  • Model setup using different software tools and systems biology platforms
  • Using experimental data for setting up quantitative models
  • Parameter estimation, optimization and model fitting
  • Simulation, analysis and visualization of biochemical models
  • Database supported modelling: integrated data management and model databases
  • Community standards and formats for systems biology models

Target audience
Experimentalists and modellers with some very basic experience in modelling and simulation of biological networks and everybody who would like to learn more about the tools and standards. Attendees are expected to bring their own computer.
