Computational Models in Biology and Medicine



Workshop Outline


This workshop is intended as a forum for researchers from different scientific areas such as bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology, who share a common interest in the statistical analysis and modelling of biological systems and their applications in medical research. The workshop has established itself as an interaction hub for computational biology groups situated all over Germany and Europe. The workshop especially encourages the active participation of young scientists.
