Modelling and simulation for the interpretation of single-cell data

PerMedCoE organises the session ‘Modelling and simulation for the interpretation of single-cell data’ at the CompBioMed Conference 2021, which will be held virtually on 15-17 September. Deadline for abstract submission is 28 June.

Date: 16/Sep/2021 Time: 16:00



Cost: CompBioMed Conference fees: Students: 40.00€ Early Bird registration (until 16 July): 50.00€ Standard registration (after 16 July): 60.00€    

Primary tabs

Single-cell technologies have emerged as a groundbreaking technique in molecular biology, providing unprecedented insights into cellular heterogeneity. Their unique characteristics have stimulated the development of a vast generation of computational methods aimed at profiling cell differentiation trajectories, reconstructing cell-type-specific gene regulatory networks, or inferring cell-to-cell communication, among others.

The goal of this session is to bring together different Computational Biology researchers at the interphase of single-cell data studies and modelling to discuss advancements on both ends and facilitate exchanges that could help accelerate research. The session welcomes success stories about interesting single-cell analyses, modelling frameworks that would welcome single-cell data and novel methods that bring these two communities closer together.

Call for Abstracts

We accept abstracts about computational methods integrating single-cell data, focusing on mathematical modelling and simulation protocols to predict relevant cellular features in different biological scenarios. These abstracts will be peer-reviewed by a panel of specialists, and those selected will be included in the programme as 15 min selected talks.

Relevant topics for the call for abstracts:

  • Genomic heterogeneity
  • Network modelling
  • Reconstruction of gene regulatory networks
  • Integrative multi-omics models
  • Cell-to-cell communication
  • Multiscale modelling
  • AI/ML applications
