Dear all,

there will be a GROMACS tutorial as part of the q-bio Summer School
2015 at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM (details



Original Announcement:

Dear Faculty, Students and Postdocs,

We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for
the Ninth Annual q-bio Summer School.

The application requires a CV and a 1-page statement of interest in the
summer school (combined into a singe .pdf). Scholarships are available.
_Applications will be due on*Monday, February 16 at 11:59pm (MST)*_.
Submitted applications may be revised until that time.

To apply now, please visit our website:

The q-bio Summer School will cover nine different general topic areas
and be held at *three different campuses*. The specific dates and campus
locations are:

1. July 6-21, 2015 at the Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO

2. July 13-28, 2015 at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM

3. July 13-28, 2015 at the University of California in San Diego, CA.

*School Overview:* The q-bio Summer School is an annual event intended
to advance predictive modeling of cellular regulatory systems by
exposing participants to a survey of work in quantitative biology and by
providing in-depth instruction in selected techniques, with an emphasis
on techniques useful for modeling cellular regulatory networks. Certain
data analysis techniques and experimental methods will also be covered.

Lectures will be offered at *three campuses.* At the *San Diego campus*,
the focus will be on synthetic biology. At the *Albuquerque and Fort
Collins campuses*, the focus will be on different aspects of systems
biology. Students will each work on a mentored project in one of the
following areas: stochastic gene regulation, cell signaling,
biomolecular simulations, viral dynamics, cancer dynamics, fluorescence
imaging and imaging data analysis, and
experimental/computational/theoretical methods in synthetic biology.
Participants will attend daily core lectures, project-specific lectures,
journal clubs, and computer and experimental labs. The summer school is
designed for graduate students, postdocs, or anyone with a quantitative
background who is new to modeling cellular regulatory systems/networks.
After completion of the school, all students are strongly encouraged to
attend either the Ninth q-bio Conference in Blacksburg, VA (August 5-8,
2015) or the Fourth Winter q-bio Meeting (TBA).

*The main topics of the 2015 summer school are:*

  * Biomolecular Simulations (Albuquerque, NM)
  * Cell Signaling (Albuquerque, NM)
  * Membrane Biology (Albuquerque, NM)
  * Viral Dynamics (Albuquerque, NM)
  * Cancer Dynamics (Fort Collins, CO)
  * Complex Biological Dynamics (Fort Collins, CO)
  * Stochastic Gene Regulation (Fort Collins, CO)
  * Computational Synthetic Biology (San Diego, CA)
  * Experimental Synthetic Biology (San Diego, CA)

Please see the school wiki
for more information about each specific topic.

At the School, students will attend 20-25 hours of core lectures, 20-25
hours of course-specific lectures, 10-15 hours of computational and
experimental labs, and 10-15 hours of student presentations. There will
also be 20-30 hours of mentored project work, which may include some
simple experiments, theoretical developments and/or real data analyses.
