[Master Class for Pro] Practical methods in computational systems biology

7 heures 30

Descriptif de la formation

The BME@UPCité graduate school is organizing two master classes for professionals on 11 May and 12 June 2023.

These 2 days are focused on Computational Systems Biology and Network Science in biology and aim to introduce these topics through practical training. 

The 2 masterclasses are independent, but you can attend both. 

They are open to PhD students, researchers and engineers in academia and industry. 

Registration is mandatory and the number of places is limited to 20. 

Pr Sophie Bernard and Pr Samuel Bottani




Do you want to combine mathematics, biology and data science to address the challenges of human health? Take this master class in computational systems biology, which is at the heart of modern biology and health research (personalized medicine, toxicology...) to acquire the skills needed to produce effective research in bioinformatics and computational biology.


Audience:           Doctoral students, researchers, and engineers in academia and industry.

Costs Master Class         500€ per DayFree for Université Paris Cité PhD students and staff

Deadline to enroll          9 May 2023



9:30Welcome and coffee

Learning Objectives 

During this masterclass, you will:

  • Discover the main theories and principles of systems biology;
  • Become familiar with the different tools and methods used in systems biology for data interpretation and hypothesis formulation in biological science;
  • Gain practical experience in designing models to better understand biological problems, interactions between different entities in living systems and the environment;
  • Acquire skills in data analysis.


  • Theory and principles of systems biology
  • Basic training in methods and tools
  • Hands-on sessions on biological problems

This masterclass does not require any specific preparation or prerequisites.
