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:

  1. State-of-the-art multidisciplinary training in both developmental biology and computational approaches that are essential for integrative quantitative biology.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
