We are pleased to invite you to attend our training course for using ZF-HEALTH computation tools and resources, organized by the EU FP7 Integrated Project ZF-HEALTH "Zebrafish Regulomics for Human Health".
The workshop will take place in Gif-sur-Yvette Cedex, France, June 1-3, 2015. The aims of the course are to disseminate some of the computational biology tools, resources and concepts built during the course of ZF-Health (2010-2015) and foster an e-community that will synergize through the use of common databases and software. We will focus on three resources that have been in part disseminated through publications and conferences:
- VIBE-Z for the construction and querying of protein and gene expression in the zebrafish embryonic brain http://vibez.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/
- BioEmergences workflow for the reconstruction of cell lineages from in vivo imaging and for in silico experimentation http://www.bioemergences.eu
- MecaGen, agent based framework to couple gene regulation and cell behaviours in embryonic morphogenesis modelling http://bioemergences.iscpif.fr/bioemergences/modeling.php
The training course will be organized for three different groups of attendees willing to manipulate the functionalities of VIBE-Z, BioEmergences-WF and MecaGen respectively. We expect to discuss all the aspects of data acquisition, data management and data analysis relevant for building and using gene/protein expression atlases, digital cell lineages and cell shape segmentation, and mecanogenetic models of embryogenesis. We will also explore the relevance of combining the resources to investigate the dynamics of gene expression along the cell lineage and use this data to challenge theoretical models and their simulation.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own data. We will provide computers although attendees are welcome to bring their personal laptop. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In association with the ZF-HEALTH workshop, the organizers are pleased to announce a one day symposium on Thursday 4th June 2015, you are cordially invited to (details of which will be announced soon).
