The MCISB announces a COPASI User Workshop for the summer 2011. The 3 day Modeling and Simulation in Systems Biology course will be offered at the MIB, University of Manchester, UK.
This is the first of two 3-day workshops to take place in the Summer (watch out for the announcement of the second one in the USA)
'’Modelling and Simulation in Systems Biology’‘
June 14 - 16, 2011 at Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre, Manchester, UK
Led by Pedro Mendes and Juergen Pahle
This workshop is for current or prospective users of the COPASI modeling and simulation package for system biology. The workshop will take place in the UK (there will be another one in the USA in July).
The workshop is directed both at beginners as well as advanced users and there will be sessions directed at each of these groups (in parallel if needed). The workshop will also be an important means for the COPASI development team to collect feedback from users about improving the software.
COPASI is a free, open-source, software package for creating and simulating systems biology models. COPASI runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and it is a user-friendly software that allows for construction of kinetic models without much knowledge of mathematics. However COPASI is also equipped with advanced algorithms and is a powerful tool for modeling and simulation, with some features that are not available in other simulators. COPASI is available at http://www.copasi.org
The workshop will cover several features of modeling and simulation by using examples of previously published models. The set of topics covered:

This workshop is sponsored by the Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology with funding from the BBSRC and EPSRC.
