When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: BIOLOGY: Introduction to Systems and Synthetic Biology
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 2:00PM - 3:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Herbert Sauro
Presenter(s):Herbert Sauro, Deepak Chandran
ABSTRACT: This introductory level session presents an overview of the field of systems biology, exploring some of the online resources in the field that draw on community standards such as the Systems Biology Markup Language. The second half of this session explores computational modeling in systems biology, and introduces concepts of dynamic modeling through hands-on activities.
Dynamic modeling of biomolecular systems provides scientists with quantitative hypotheses. Once an adequate hypothesis (model) is produced, it can be used to anticipate the effects of perturbations to the system resulting from disease or medical intervention. This session introduces JDesigner, Jarnac and Systems Biology Workbench Software tools, which can be used to build, run and analyze biological system models. The Biomodels repository will also be described, together with new advanced design tools such as Tinkercell can be use as teaching resources.
Assumed background: "Computational Biology Overview" session or equivalent.
