BSC workshop addresses the most advanced techniques in computational biology

21 November 2023

The event, organised in collaboration with the European Molecular Biology Organization, brings researchers into contact with representatives of the industrial sector

High Performance Computing (HPC) provides unprecedented opportunities to boost Computational Biology’s ability to uncover mechanisms behind drug synergies and drug treatment by employing digital twins of all scales, from molecules to entire bodies.

In this way, to share knowledge and discuss the most advanced techniques, the Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS), with the support of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), are organizing the workshop “Computational models of life: From molecular biology to digital twins”.

The workshop will be held at Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Spain from 26 November to 1 December 2023 and will encourage interaction between 60 early-stage researchers, field leaders and industry players from bioinformatics, computational biology and HPC. Attendees will be able to share cutting edge techniques at the crossroads of single-cell omics, modelling and HPC to pave the way for realistic, scalable human digital twins.

Networking and knowledge exchange among all attendees will be a key driver of the workshop. Early career researchers will be given many opportunities to delve into the professional and academic backgrounds of speakers. Moreover, the scientific speed dating, flash talks, meet the speaker, career path, poster sessions and the social activities will allow attendees to make the most of this workshop. The programme, the speakers and all the event information are available on the website and LinkedIn.

About EMBO
EMBO is an organization of more than 1,900 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences in Europe and beyond. The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a research environment where scientists can achieve their best work. EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
