22nd Jacob T. Schwartz International School for Scientific Research

Biology and Computer Science: Modelling and Computing

July 10 - July 17, 2010, Lipari Island


Deadline: April 20, 2010

22nd Jacob T. Schwartz International School for Scientific Research
addresses PhD students and young researchers who want to get exposed
to the forefront of research activity in the field of Modelling and
Computing and their applications to biology. The school will be held
in the beautiful surroundings of the Island of Lipari.

The theme of the school is the cross-fertilization of biology and
computer science, shown by means of some examples. On the one hand, it
will be shown how methods of computer science can be employed in the
analysis of microarray data and in the construction of models of
biological phenomena, such as cell behaviour and evolution. On the
other hand, models of computing will be presented which are inspired
by biology and propose new ways for representing data and elaborating
them, with interesting results on the computational complexity. DNA
and P systems are the models which will be described.
