DevCom International Training Network
Welcome to the DevCom website. DevCom is a European training consortium that aims to bridge the gap of training, knowledge and skills between the disciplines of developmental and computational biology. The DevCom consortium has been established by a group of European research institutes and industrial partners.
The objectives of DevCom:
- State-of-the-art multidisciplinary training in both developmental biology and computational approaches that are essential for integrative quantitative biology.
- Improve the career perspectives of its researchers by having them develop broad and complementary skills, including management, communication, writing, dissemination, intellectual property, and entrepreneurship, and prepare them for leading roles in academia and industry.
- Elucidate embryonic gene regulatory-, and developmental networks associated with disease, by integrating molecular, developmental, statistical and computational approaches, and advancing a systems level understanding of vertebrate embryonic development.
Losing Our Minds: Effects of Chemical Pollution on the Intellectual Capacity and Mental Health of Future Generations
By Barbara Demeneix
In Losing Our Minds I set up and discuss the hypothesis that two major environmental factors are interacting synergistically and adversely affecting early brain development, particularly during intra-uterine growth. These two factors are chemical pollution affecting thyroid hormone signaling and iodine lack. This hypothesis is based on the well-established fac...Read more
This 4 day course will introduce the participants to more complex methods of computational analysis which will broaden attendees understanding of what is possible, and introduce new tools and techniques. In particular the workshop will look at machine learning methods and the use of Bayesian statistics.Read more
