BIO SIMULATION

Workshop on computer-aided mathematical simulation of biological processes and systems

Biosimulation is a general term describing computer-aided mathematical simulation of biological processes and systems and thus is an integral part of systems biology. Due to the complexity of biological systems simplified models are often used, which should only be as complex as necessary.

The aim of biosimulations is model-based prediction of the behaviour and the dynamics of biological systems. However the quality of model-based predictions strongly depends on the quality of the model which in turn is defined by the quality of the data and the profoundness of the knowledge it is based on.

Topics to be covered in this Workshop

Session 1

a) What is simulation and how it is related with Bio-Medical Science
b) Branches of bio-simulation and their implementation
c) Introduction Quantum Science
d) A brief of Fourier's Equation (digital signal)linked to human signal passing
e) Stateless electron Bose Einstein and Fermi-Dirac Equation
f) Human memory model in the light of Computer Science.

Session 2

a) Short term and Long term Memory in the light of Quantum Mechanics Tunneling Effect
b) Physics explanation of sub conscious and unconscious memory
c) The Short term memory less always does not happen from injury-A case of assassination of American President Mr.Kenedy
d) Explaining the matter by demonstrating a bio-simulator

Session 3

a) More many bio-simulators in different domains like drug effects, Bayesian inference through Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations
. b) A little practice of coding in C programming Language to understand application better.

Session 4

a) Understanding BIOCHAM programming environment for design your own simulator.
b) Video presentation of existing model and creating a model.
c) Setup BIOCHAM and get manual for it.
d) Get resources for different bio-simulator software and Applications.

System Requirement:

I. C compiler (preferably gcc) and a Java compiler.
II. This patched version of GNU Prolog.
III. The GNU MP bignum library (version 4.1.3 or higher).
IV. The Parma Polyhedra Library (version 0.10 or more recent)
V. Perl, to Generate editor modes for vim and emacs.
VI. Help2man to generate the man page.
