Scientific Programme

The course will be open for students with experimental and/or theoretical background. It is expected that students with different background will stimulate and support each other. The aim is to generate a group of twenty-four motivated and highly interacting students.

Students will be required to prepare themselves for the course depending on their level in experimental biology or mathematical modelling.
As a basis for mathematical modelling the book “Systems Biology: A Textbook”, (Klipp, Liebermeister, Wierling, Kowald, 2016) should be studied in advance of the course.
To introduce principles of experimental cell biology studying a recent cell biology/cell physiology book is recommended.
To introduce the specific biological systems that will serve as examples in the course a set of review articles will be distributed.

See Tutorial page for more information.

The course is intense and for 9 full days from 08.30 until about 21.00, plus two half day. Do not expect much spare-time during the course days and rather plan extra days in Göteborg for sight-seeing.

The course programme consists of:

1. Introductory lectures
2. Computer exercises
3. Laboratory experiments
4. Discussions in groups and within the entire group
5. Invited lectures
6. Seminars by the participants
