COPASI User Workshop 2009


The user workshop will provide hands on experience with COPASI's main capabilities. During the 3 day course the participant will learn how to create models within COPASI and how to use COPASI's powerful simulation and analysis features.

The introduction of COPASI's feature will be done with known existing models such as the Circadian Clock or Calcium Oscillation. We will use real experimental data from our lab to analyze and fit enzyme kinetic models. Some of the features highlighted during this use case based approach will be:
  • Stochastic Simulation
  • Sensitivities
  • Scans
  • Optimization
  • Reports
  • Plotting
  • Histograms
  • Batch Processing


The primary target for this workshop are graduate students and scientist in the life science area who are interested in using COPASI as a modeling tool. Prior knowledge of COPASI is not required.
