MODELLING DYNAMICS IN BIOLOGY. FROM HISTORY
TO PRACTICAL EXAMPLES”, February 4-7, 2014.
Instructors: Dr. Andreea Munteanu (CGR, Spain) and Dr. Carlos Rodríguez-Caso
(Universidad Pompeu Fabra, Spain).
Place: Premises of Sabadell of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel
Crusafont, Barcelona (Spain).
The current course will present an overview of systems biology with emphasis on
the necessity, uses and pitfalls of dynamical modelling in biology. It
introduces the required language and philosophy for a smooth and fruitful
collaboration between life scientists and theoreticians (i.e. mathematicians,
physicists, computer scientists, evolutionary biologists). The main goal of the
course is not a detailed description of the modelling tools in systems biology,
but a thorough overview of the terminology and applicability range of these
methodologies. The time dedication throughout the course will be one third for
theoretical introduction, and two thirds for modelling applications for very
diverse biological systems. The participants will acquire the necessary skills
to understand and interpret models and modelling results from scientific
articles, and will take the first steps into building their own mathematical
