Gene Regulatory Networks for Development (MBL Course)

When: 8th - 20th October 2023

Where: Woods Hole, MA, USA

This course introduces the concepts of Gene regulatory networks (GRNs), and teaches experimental and computational methods used to study them, through highly interactive lectures, discussions, group projects, and practical tutorials. We will cover a broad range of topics, including transcriptional control systems, the structural organization of hierarchical networks, developmental functions of GRN circuit modules, GRN evolution, and computational modeling using BioTapestry as well as Boolean and quantitative mathematical approaches.

Application due date: Jul 11, 2023

Organizers: Titus Brown, University of California, Davis, and Veronica Hinman, Carnegie Mellon University.
