Recent work of the group, CIMICE - Markov Chain Inference Method to Identify Cancer Evolution, has been presented at the Workshop Analysis of Big Omics Data, part of BITS 2019, the 16th Annual Conference of the Bioinformatics Italian Society.
CMSB 2019 aims is to bring together researchers from across biological, mathematical, computational, and physical sciences who are interested in the study, modelling, simulation, advanced analysis, and design of biological systems.
HSB centres on dynamical models in biology, with an emphasis on both hybrid systems (in the classical sense, i.e., mixed continuous/discrete/stochastic systems) and hybrid approaches that combine modelling, analysis, algorithmic and experimental techniques from different areas.
Hybrid systems and approaches are essential to the understanding of complex living systems, which are characterized by stochasticity and heterogeneous spatiotemporal scales. These methods are crucial also for the design and analysis of artificial biochemical systems (e.g., engineered bacteria or molecular machines) and of medical cyber-physical systems such as pacemakers and infusion pumps. The complexity of such models makes their formal analysis challenging, and even their simulations are often impractical, calling for appropriate model abstractions and scalable analysis methods.
HSB aims at bringing together researchers from different disciplines interested in applying these methods to the study of structure, dynamics, and control mechanisms of living systems.
The Workshop and School on Cancer Development and Complexity seeks to convene researchers from various related disciplines to explore multiple facets of the challenges posed by cancer a “disease of the systems.” The workshop will provide opportunities for the researchers to exchange new ideas and viewpoints, forge new collaborations and train the next generation of young scientists.
The conference will to bring together researchers from across biological, mathematical, computational, and physical sciences who are interested in the study, modelling, simulation, advanced analysis, and design of biological systems.
The workshop aims at exchanging ideas between researchers and collecting, if possible, new problems to be faced in the next future by our community.
