Multi-scale and Multi-level Modelling Methodologies in Biomedicine

This OpenMultiMed Training School is to provide an overview to the concepts, methods and computational tools currently available for the development and simulation of multi-level models in Biomedicine. The course will be composed of sessions that will combine theory and hands-on lectures. The last block will include case studies of successful use of multilevel modelling in the context of cancer, infection and degenerative diseases explained by their authors. You will learn: 1) Boolean modelling using CellNetAnalyzer (https://goo.gl/6nzGtp), 2) ODE and stochastic modelling using COPASI (http://copasi.org), and 3) Agent-based, multi-scale and multi-level modelling using Morpheus (https://goo.gl/hpWrzR).

This OpenMultiMed Training School is to provide an overview to the concepts, methods and computational tools currently available for the development and simulation of multi-level models in Biomedicine. The course will be composed of four sessions that will combine theory and hands-on lectures. The last block will include case studies of successful use of multi-level modelling in the context of cancer, infection and degenerative diseases explained by their authors.
