Winter School in Mathematical and Computational Biology
This year’s UQ-based Winter School in Mathematical and Computational Biology has scored a bioinformatics legend as one of its keynote speakers.
Prof. Burkhard Rost, President of the International Society for Computational Biology since 2007 and Chair of Bioinformatics at the Technical University of Munich, will deliver a talk on 5 July at the Winter School on bioinformatics methods, models and applications to disease.
His particular research interest is predicting protein interactions and the effects of changing individual amino acids, with the goal of fostering a better understanding of how proteins, genes and cells work.
Other international keynote speakers at the Winter School include:
- Prof. Edward DeLong, University of Hawaii
- Prof. Howard Ochman, University of Texas
- Dr Mathieu Bourgey, McGill University, Canada.
Early bird registration for the Winter School closes on 15 June.
