Presented under the auspices of the DIMACS/BioMaPS/MB Center Special Focus on Information Processing in Biology.

This special focus is jointly sponsored by the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS), and the Biological, Mathematical, and Physical Sciences Interfaces Institute for Quantitative Biology (BioMaPS). The National Institutes of Health provides partial funding of the BioMaPS Summer School through the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research, Grant 5 K07 GM72919.

Course Goals and Intended Audience:

This short course on chromatin structure and gene regulation is designed to:

  1. enable participants with advanced training in the mathematical, computational, and physical sciences, but with a more limited background in biology, to contribute to research at the interface of the biological, mathematical, and physical sciences;
  2. introduce participants with traditional backgrounds in biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology to the potential value of quantitative approaches in their own work;
  3. provide participants with in-depth training in an important subfield within molecular biology.

The course is appropriate for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty members, and biomedical researchers from non-academic organizations.
