Institute Hosts Computational Immunology Workshop

From June 10th to June 14th, 2013, the Hariri Institute hosted the Summer School on Quantitative Systems Immunology, a national workshop organized by the Center for Computational Immunology. The workshop is intended for trainees in the biological sciences who want to explore the use of mathematics, statistics, and computation in their own research but may not have experience in the quantitative or computational sciences. The workshop begins with a day of foundations in mathematical modeling and statistics, followed by four days of morning lectures and corresponding practical exercises in the afternoon on topics including phylogenetics, molecular evolution of viruses and antibodies, network and pathway analysis, biochemical reaction modeling, population-dynamic modeling, and biomedical ontologies.
