Open Symposium: Multi-scale simulation of living organisms: from genomes to entire human organs


Primary tabs

Massie DNA sequencing, genomic transcription, and functional genomic transcription projects help us decipher the action mechanisms of human genes. Furthermore, proteomics, and molecular modeling tools are increasing the knowledge on protein functions within the cell. Finally the integration of medical data in biomechanical and neuroinformatic models allows us to make rational representations of organs which work for customized simulations. This dense knowledge at different scales is a major challenge in computing, which in turn opens the opportunity for innovation in future medical therapies.

In this open symposium several research leaders in the field of computing and life sciences will discuss multi-scale simulation in the computer models that allow us to study living organisms. They will discuss the current state and future expectations of human simulations and the technical aspects of simulation and genomics.

Date: Thursday, September 19 from 15:00 pm to 18:30 pm.

Location: CosmoCaixa. C / Isaac Newton, 26, of Barcelona.
