2012 Winter School in Mathematical and Computational Biology (2-6 July 2012)
Each year, The University of Queensland hosts the national Winter School in Mathematical and Computational Biology. The 2012 Winter School will be held from 2-6 July (Monday through Friday) at Queensland Bioscience Precinct, across from the main Chancellor's Place bus stops on the St Lucia campus of UQ.
Winter School is designed to introduce mathematical and computational biology and bioinformatics to advanced undergraduates and postgraduates, researchers and others working in mathematics, statistics, computer science, information technology, and biological, chemical and medical sciences and engineering - or interested in research problems and opportunities in this exciting, fast-moving area.
Winter School is structured by topic. This year the theme of the Winter School is from genomes to ecologies. Topics include:
-- Next generation sequencing & bioinformatics
-- Next generation sequence analysis
-- Systems biology
-- Ecology and populations
Our presenters, many of whom are leading national and international authorities, have been selected for their ability to make their topic accessible to and exciting for a non-specialist audience. This year they come from top universities and research institutes in Auckland, Brisbane, Georgia (USA), Marseille (France), Melbourne and Sydney.
Online registration will be open on Monday 14 May 2012 through Winter School web site: http://bioinformatics.org.au/ws12
A limited number of travel bursaries are available to students registered to attend the 2012 Winter School at Australasian and/or other regional institutions. For application details, please visit Winter School web site under "Scholarships".
