Systems Biology Workshop 2015
St. Petersburg, May 21-24
The second practical course in computational and systems biology is focused on the cross-over from bioinformatics to experimental biology, highlighting biology underlying systems level data and corresponding experimental designs for data acquisition and hypothesis testing.
We will consider approaches to generation of system level data ranging from gene expression, RNA-, ChiP-, and exome-sequencing up to high-throughput metabolomics and network-based data integration.
A four-day workshop will take place at the country hotel near St. Petersburg. Each day will consist of lectures and practical modules where students will be able to carry out simplified calculations and discuss biological implications of their results.
The working languages of the workshop will be Russian (lectures) and English (supplementary materials).
- Introduction to sequencing. RNA-seq & Gene expression analysis.
- Medical and Population Genetics.
- Transcriptional and epigenetic regulation.
- Metabolic regulation and introduction into metabolomics.

The workshop is focused on those who want to learn about computational/systems biology approaches and their applications. People from both academia and industry are invited to apply. Basic knowledge of biology and ability to read English papers is required.
All participants are supposed to pay registration fees. If the participation fee is paid prior to April 15, early registration discount applies. Registration fees cover all the expenses: accommodation, transfer, meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), workshop materials and coffee breaks.
Bioinformatics Institute students and alumni can pay the registration fee as “student”.
We encorage you to search for funding opportunities at your institution or consider special grant programs (for instance, Mikhail Prokhorov Foundation travel grants).
Outstanding applications from students and PhD students will be considered for grants from organisers covering workshop's registration fees.
