Computer models are increasingly used by researchers as well as the pharmaceutical industry to investigate disease initiation, progression and therapy. Modelling of biochemical pathways deregulated in disease condition offers mechanistic insights into the pathology; helps to elucidate mechanisms behind dug action and predict dose required for treatment and thereby greatly facilitates fundamental research and drug discovery. Such modelling requires a background in both molecular biology and mathematics.

The four days workshop will train researchers from life science and mathematics to communicate and work together to learn to build and analyse computer models using user-friendly open-source software. The workshop will be jointly organised by EBI and Indian Institute of
Technology Madras (IITM; https://www.iitm.ac.in/), more specifically, BioModels team from EBI along with Initiative for Biological Systems Engineering (IBSE; https://ibse.iitm.ac.in/) and Robert Bosch Centre for Data Sciences and Artificial Intelligence (RBC-DSAI; https://rbcdsai.iitm.ac.in/)
from IITM. This national-level workshop will be organised locally at IITM. Various modelling approaches and tools will be introduced to the participants. They will explore a few of the disease-specific computer models from a recent publication, freely available in BioModels
