Programs


RTK Workshop (2 days)

Date: October 12th (Thursday) and October 13th (Friday), 2006
Organizers: RTK Consortium and RIKEN Genomic Sciences Center (GSC)

Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) are central components of cell signaling networks and play crucial roles in normal physiological processes, such as embryogenesis, cell proliferation and cell death (apoptosis). RTK networks function to detect, amplify, filter and process a variety of environmental and intercellular cues. Understating of RTK network is important to

  • Identify key components and regulations, design and extension of assays de novo, and formulation of a series of mathematical models of RTK regulatory networks.
  • Generate and test hypotheses important for the identification of therapeutic targets and translational research.

The training course is composed of two main sessions; (1st day) biological and theoretical lectures for understanding of characteristics of RTK network system, and (2nd day) practical sessions to handle software and databases for modeling, and actual data analysis. The data (proteomics and microarray, etc) for the kinetic analysis will be provided on the session. The participants may be asked data types and bioinformatics tools needed for the analysis upon registration.

For details, please check here. Please register by September 15.

The 2006 SBML Forum Meeting (2 days)

Date: October 12th (Thursday) and October 13th (Friday), 2006
Organizers: Mike Hucka (Caltech), The Systems Biology Markup Language Team

The Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) is a format for representing computational models in a way that can be used by different software systems to communicate and exchange those models. By supporting SBML as an input and output format, different software tools can all operate on an identical representation of a model, removing opportunities for errors in translation and assuring a common starting point for analyses and simulations. SBML is by no means a perfect format, but it has proven useful and achieved widespread acceptance within the domain of modeling of biochemical reaction networks.

The annual SBML Forum meeting is an opportunity for the SBML community to meet face-to-face and discuss developments in SBML as well as software systems for systems biology. The SBML Forum Meeting will include presentations by software developers, modelers and researchers on topics relevant to software for systems biology, as well as focused discussions about SBML itself.

Following the tradition of past SBML Forum meetings, this will be a working meeting aimed at enhancing research communication and software interoperability through SBML. Potential attendees are cautioned not to expect any tutorials about SBML itself, and are referred to the documents at sbml.org/documents and the sbml-discuss mailing list for questions of a more basic nature about SBML. All presentations and discussions at this meeting will focus on detailed technical matters concerning SBML, its use, development and evolution, and related software and standards.

SBGN Workshop (1 day)

Date: October 7th (Saturday), 2006
Organizers: Hiroaki Kitano (SBI & Sony CSL), Yukiko Matsuoka (SBI & JST), Akira Funahashi (SBI & JST), Mike Hucka (Caltech), Nicolas Le Novère (EBI)

The Systems Biology Graphical Notation (SBGN) project is an attempt to do for network diagrams in biology what similar efforts have done for diagrams in engineering: standardize the graphical elements so that readers, publishers, and software developers can all use a common visual notation to express biological network diagrams.

SBGN-2 is the second biannual meeting of the SBGN effort, the first having been a small workshop held in February 2006. SBGN-2 will be a one-day workshop that is open to anyone interested. The workshop will largely consist of discussions about emerging proposals for SBGN. These proposals will be made available on the SBGN project web site (http://sbgn.org) prior to the meeting.

For details, please check here. Please fill out the registration page if you plan on attending.

Systems Biology and the Human Health Risks of Environmental Chemicals (1 day on Oct. 12th)

Date: October 12th (Thursday), 2006
Organizer: Rory Conolly (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) Conolly.Rory at epa.gov

Health risks of environmental chemicals are determined by intensity of exposure and by response functions. Biological systems controlling absorption and distribution of chemicals and the responses of cells and tissues to the chemicals are the basis for the response functions. We are developing molecular-level descriptions of this biology with the long-term goal of predicting time-courses and intensities of adverse effects. Shorter-term goals include learning how to modularize descriptions of intracellular signaling systems, optimize coordination of high throughput laboratory technologies with development of computational models, and fully exploiting statistical and analysis tools to ensure rigorous development of the computational models.
