Mathematical and Computational Biology Education
Host:
University of Puerto Rico - Rio Piedras
Location:
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Date(s):
July 6, 2004 - July 9, 2004
Abstract/Description:
This four-day workshop will introduce and explore mathematical and computational biology—the use of quantitative techniques and powerful software packages to address biological questions. Over the course of the workshop, presenters will introduce specific biological questions from genetics, ecology, allometry, viral evolution, colonial morphology, and show how mathematical and computational techniques can help us learn more about these systems. Participants will then learn to use a variety of tools such as physical and computational models, phylogenetics software, and visualization software, and apply this knowledge both to explore mathematical models of biological systems and to analyze actual biological data. The workshop emphasis will be on group work and collaborative learning. Through inviting participants with diverse backgrounds and interests, we hope to encourage interdisciplinary communication and lay a foundation for future collaboration.
