[Notice] 2015 Biophysics Summer School: Information Processingn in Life

We live in an exciting era for life science. Advanced tools for observing life and accumulated information of biological systems give great opportunities for unveiling what life is. This school aims to encourage the next generation of biophysicists by introducing fundamental questions in life, experimental tools for observing life, and theoretical/computational methods for integrating data. Our school has introduced Information of Life (click) in 2014. Now we will explore Information Processing in Life. In particular, the information flow in the immune system will be much discussed.

Time: July 6 (Mon) – 8 (Wed), 2015
