Subject: 06.09.04 2nd Int School Comput Cell Biol (SCCB2006), Comp Meth Multiscale Protein Interactions, Modena, Italy
  Second International School in Computational Cell Biology - SCCB2006
  Department of Mathematics,University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy
  September 4-6, 2006

Aims and scope

The school is addressed to students and researchers either with an 
applied mathematics, computer science or engineering background who are 
interested in cell biology applications or to cellular biologists and 
biochemists who wish to gain new quantitative insights. In particular, 
it will focus on multiscale processes for protein interactions.

Systems Biology will be a significant scientific discipline in the 
twenty first century. Modelling and simulation will become key 
components: we will need to understand the interplay between the 
deterministic and stochastic, between the continuous and the discrete, 
and between small scale and large scale. This set of lectures attempts 
to explore these interplays. (Kevin Burrage)

The lectures aim at providing a systematic overview of support vector 
machines and kernel based methods in supervised, unsupervised and 
semi-supervised learning. Applications towards the specific needs for 
microarray data analysis will be explained. Different case studies will 
be considered. (Johan Suykens)

Protein force fields range from models based on physics to ones based on 
naive statistics and entertaining optimisation procedures. Here we will 
discuss how to build, break and apply score functions, when they are fun 
and when they are tragic. (Andrew Torda)
