1) Hands-on Course on Coarse Grain Methods for Biomolecular Simulations

Dates: September 26 to October 4, 2011
Location: Institut Pasteur in Montevideo, Uruguay

The development of simplified or coarse grain (CG) representations of molecular systems added to the growth of computational power, allow nowadays the study of size and timescales that really match those biologically and technologically relevant.
The Institut Pasteur in Montevideo will offer in September-October 2011 a hands-on course on simulations of biological systems to provide a comprehensive and wide spectrum of CG techniques.
This event will count with internationally recognized speakers in the field. As it will be conducted in English, participants must have an adequate working knowledge of this language.
The Course will also aim to create an interdisciplinary collaboration amongst all the attendees by dedicating an entire session to oral presentations. Dissemination of the participants’ work, besides that of the main speakers, will help form networks of collaborative work and stimulating capacity building.

The deadline for applications was July 1st 2011.

ORGANIZERS: Sergio Pantano and Marc Baaden; Leonardo Darre, Matias Machado and Ivana Faccini

SUPPORT: Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP), Institut Pasteur de Montevideo, PEDECIBA

2) Yeast Systems Biology International Course

Dates: November 7th – 22nd, 2011
Location: Institut Pasteur in Montevideo, Uruguay

The global aim of this course is to equip students to address biological questions from a comprehensive and quantitative perspective.
The course consists of 5 modules:
* Introduction for theoreticians and experimentalists
* Single cell analysis of signal transduction systems
* Network biology and metabolism
* Synthetic genetic Arrays (SGAs) and epistasis mini-array profiles (EMAPs)
* Genetic interaction mapping of intracellular traffic

Theoretical and practical sessions will be organized in a way that the skills of one group of students will help the other group.
The course is designed to foster two types of students: those with biological background and those trained in quantitative sciences such as mathematics and physics.
