New publication of the Vera-Licona Lab

06-20-22 Congratulations to Dr. Paola Vera-Licona and Lauren Marazzi who recently published a paper in npj Systems Biology and Applications on NETISCE: a network-based tool for cell fate reprogramming. In this paper, they introduce NETISCE, a novel computational tool for identifying cell fate reprogramming targets in static networks. In combination with machine learning algorithms, NETISCE estimates the attractor landscape and predicts reprogramming targets using Signal Flow Analysis and Feedback Vertex Set Control, respectively.

The 23rd Annual Workshop on Computational Cell Biology

05-25-22 The 23rd Computational Cell Biology workshop took place at R. D. Berlin Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling (CCAM) on May 23-25th. For 3 days more than 40 online participants learnt how to use VCell, COPASI and SpringSalad software tools for modeling of cell biology systems. 16 participants participated in the “project track”, working individually with CCAM staff on developing their modeling projects.
