OCISB Seminar Professor Yves V. Brun Clyde Culbertson Professor of Biology Indiana University, Bloomington Evolution and regulation of bacterial growth, morphology, and development. Wednesday 10th April 2013 11.00 am New Biochemistry Building, Main Seminar Room All Invited.
Application Deadline: April 15, 2012 The three week course in Computational Cell Biology will incorporate a series of didactic lectures on the mathematics of dynamical systems, computational simulation techniques, cell biology and molecular biology. Practicing theoreticians and experimentalists will rotate in for 1-3 day visits during the course to give lectures and interact with the students. Midway through the course, students will select an area for independent study, and the focus of the last week of the course will largely be on these projects, supplemented by continued visiting lecturers.
A student organised conference on synthetic biology
A conference celebrating 5 years since the foundation of the Oxford Centre for Integrative Systems Biology.
IV International Conference on Environmental, Industrial and Applied Microbiology (BioMicroWorld2011)
The BioMicroWorld2011 Conference will be a multi-disciplinary forum that will bring together active researches involved in environmental, industrial and applied microbiology with the aim of communicating current research priorities and progress in the field, and identifying new approaches and research opportunities in applied microbiology. BioMicroWorld2011 consolidates a series of conferences, whose last edition, held in Lisbon (Portugal) in 2009, received about 1000 abstracts to be considered for presentation and attracted more than 600 researchers from nearly 60 countries.
Registration for the third RoSBNet workshop is now open. The event will take place at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford from 20th – 22nd July. More information can be found on our Webpage. To book your place please complete the Registration Form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 1st of June.
The potential contribution that computational and theoretical modelling can make to our understanding of biological systems is enormous. This meeting will highlight recent advances in modelling microbiological systems. As well as their well-known potential for causing disease, microbes are crucial for the functioning of the Earth's biogeochemical cycles and are essential for many industrial processes such as fermentation and waste water treatment. Microbes are also an ideal starting point for understanding how biological processes work in higher organisms, populations and ecosystems. During 2010-2011, our e-science institute-funded theme ’Modelling and Microbiology’ has explored the potential for productive interactions between modellers and microbiologists in the key areas of stochasticity in microbial infection, microbial evolution and microbial metabolism. This meeting will bring together these themes and suggest future directions.
The Conference will review the current state of the art, both in methodology and its application to some of the most important molecular machines in the cell, including: chromosome replication and segregation; the gene expression machinery; cell shape determination and polarity; cell division; and cell motility.
The 11th International Conference on Systems Biology continuing it’s annual series of conferences initiated by Hiroaki Kitano in Tokyo in 2000
