INCOME Hackathon 2019

Integrative pathway modeling in systems biology and systems medicine

March 18 - 20, 2019

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Mathematical models of cellular pathways are essential tools in systems biology and systems medicine. They contribute to an understanding of structure and dynamics of cellular processes far beyond their isolated parts, as well as the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of diseases. Yet, there are a variety of open questions.

The hackathon will gather experts in pathway modeling to develop tools for model development, reuse and merging. This hackathon will focus on:

Topic 1: Implementation of import functionalities in modelling tools.
Topic 2: Development of format validation tool.
Topic 3: Extension of model and data repository.
Topic 4: Evaluation of supervised model merging.

Additional details are available here.

The hackathon is complemented by oral presentations by three invited speakers who are experts for method / tool development and application. In addition, there will be lightning talks of participants selected from submitted abstracts on Monday evening.

We invite all persons who want to contribute to these topics to apply for participation. The application deadline for up to 30 participants is February 18. Please register here for the hackathon in Frankfurt.

The hackathon is funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) via the e:Med Project INCOME. INCOME aims to facilitate scientific exchange and training to establish a platform for integrative model development.
