The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Tutorial, *"Mathematical
Modeling for the Cell Biology Researcher and Educator "* to be held
April 8-10, 2013, at NIMBioS.

*Objectives:* This tutorial will introduce and teach participants how to
use computational resources for mathematical modeling and simulation of
kinetic networks and networks in spatial context. During the tutorial,
we will briefly introduce the mathematical foundations of reaction
kinetics and different simulation techniques. Participants will work
through a series of examples of increasing biological and mathematical
complexity. By the conclusion of the tutorial, participants will have
learned the skills needed to build and simulate models of reaction
networks. Attendees will be encouraged to work on models of their own
research systems and will receive assistance from the organizers and
presenters.

*Location: *NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

*Co-Organizers: *Leslie Loew (Director, Center for Cell Analysis and
Modeling, University of Connecticut Health Center); Huaiyu Mi (Division
of Bioinformatics, Department of Preventive Medicine, Keck School of
Medicine of USC); Michael Blinov (Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling,
University of Connecticut Health Center); Sofya Borinskaya (University
of Connecticut Health Center); Raquell Holmes (Center for Cell Analysis
and Modeling, University of Connecticut Health Center; Founder,
Improvscience) *

There are no fees associated with this tutorial. Tutorial participation
is by application only. Individuals with a strong interest in the topic,
including post-docs and graduate students, are encouraged to apply. If
needed, NIMBioS can provide support (travel, meals, lodging) for
Tutorial attendees. Applicants selected to attend will be notified by
NIMBioS by February 15.

*Application Deadline: January 31, 2012.*

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS) (http://www.nimbios.org) brings together researchers from
around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to
investigate solutions to basic and applied problems in the life
sciences. NIMBioS is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the
U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture with additional support from The University of Tennessee,
Knoxville.
