Developmental Gene Regulatory Networks Course at Woods Hole

Posted by , on 11 May 2015

GRN Course PosterAn advanced short course “Gene Regulatory Networks for Development” will be given at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, MA, October 11-24, 2015. This will be the 8th edition of this unique course, which is open to graduate students, postdocs, PIs or anyone else who might profit from a fast moving treatment of this new field. The Network Course is an intense and always interesting experience. The course covers structure and function of genomically encoded gene regulatory networks (GRNs) controlling many developmental processes, from biological, modeling, and quantitative viewpoints. Its subject matter ranges from informational and mechanistic aspects of transcription control systems to applications of GRNs in diverse developmental and evolutionary contexts. The course, which is supported by NICHD, has drawn rave reviews in all of its previous incarnations. This year’s faculty is a stellar lineup:
Scott Barolo, University of Michigan
James Briscoe, MRC National Institute for Medical Research, London
Martha Bulyk, Harvard Med. School
Justin Kumar, Indiana University
Arthur Lander, University of California Irvine
Bill Longabaugh, Institute for Systems Biology
Roger Patient, University of Oxford
Ellen Rothenberg, Caltech
Harinder Singh, Cincinnnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center
Isabelle Peter, Caltech, Course Assistant Director
David McClay, Duke University, Course Co-Director 
Eric Davidson, Caltech, Course Co-Director
