COST FA1405 Training School “Systems biology approaches to multi-way interactions”
Friday February 3rd 2017
The Training school will take place in Ljubljana (Slovenia) right after the COST FA1405 Annual Meeting, and is jointly organized by the National Institute of Biology and the Faculty of Computer and Information Science.
The goal of this one-day training school is to provide an opportunity for young researchers with a biology background to get acquainted with systems biology approaches to understand molecular mechanisms underlying multi-way biological interactions.
COST FA1405 Training School “Meta-analysis”
There will be a Training School, given by Prof. Julia Koricheva (Royal Holloway, U. London), on how to perform meta-analysis on the 27-9 July 2016, at SCENE (the University of Glasgow Field Station on the shores of beautiful Loch Lomond in Scotland. The goal is to provide background and hands-on experience for performing meta-analysis of research data. The course will cover database structure, analysis types and programs, and common pitfalls in meta-analyses (for the programme click HERE).
