10th Anniversary Edition !

Dear Students and Postdoctoral Fellows:
logo
The 10th International Summer School on Biocomplexity from Gene to System sponsored by the NSF and co-sponsored by the IEEE EMB Society, the Department of Biomedical Engineering at University of Houston, the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering at ASU and the Bogazici University will be held on July 3-9, 2011 Istanbul, Turkey.

The main objective of this summer school is to expose undergraduate and graduate biological science and bioengineering students to the relatively new approaches of the mathematical and computational challenges in Systems Biology and the new directions in computational biology, bioinformatics and molecular engineering research and to facilitate rapid diffusion of these mathematical and computational tools in the biological sciences. These methods will be helpful, also, to students in computer science and mathematics who are interested in pursuing research in biology, bio-molecular engineering and bioengineering, since the summer school provides exceptional insights into the fundamental challenges in biological sciences.

The summer school uses lectures, oriented toward biological science students, by expert faculty and will focus on he biological data mining and knowledge discovery that can be used to understand highly interconnected and complex biological systems. In addition to these lectures, the summer school will employ panel discussion, with active participation of undergraduate and graduate students, focused on future developments in computational biology, bioinformatics and molecular engineering and science. In addition, students will present their research activities in their departments and institutes in a culminating poster session, which will facilitate discussion of both the biology and computational approaches.

We look forward to seeing you in Istanbul !!!
