The course, held from May 14 - 18, 2012, will be given by Dr. Tomáš Helikar (University of Nebraska at Omaha, U.S.A.).
The objective of the course is to introduce students to the complexity and dynamics of biological processes. Students will learn about how cells sense and process information both at the molecular and "systems" levels. While the first part of the course will center around the basics of molecular biology (e.g., signal transduction and post-translational modifications) and computational modeling, the second (and larger) part of the class will be in the form of hands-on projects that will include building and conducting real time simulations and analyses of virtual cells.

Registration is required to attend the course. Please, register as soon as possible - the number of participants is limited by the size of the computer room (i.e. 40 seats). Students of Masaryk University will be given priority.
No registration fee is required to attend the course.
Students of Masaryk University can get credits for this course (2 credits for participation + 2 credits for exam).
It is not necessary to enroll the course in IS because this will be done automatically after the course will finish.


The course is funded from Inovation Lectures project (INNOLEC) supported
by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Czech Republic.
