The Center for Reproducible Biomedical Modeling develops workshops alone and in collaboration with several academic organizations and conferences in order to disseminate educational material focused on practical use of modeling software and theoretical explorations of modeling theory. An archive of workshop materials, which includes videos and links to code, data, and model repositories, along with advertisements for upcoming workshops, are maintained below.

Tellurium User Training Workshop

By the end of this week-long course, participants will have learned how to construct, simulate, and validate a biochemical differential equations-based model using the model development package, Tellurium, and programming in Python. Participants will also explore building a Docker container to distribute their model and simulation studies. An optional hacking day will be provided so that participants can consult the tutors on how skills learned in the course can be applied to their biological problem of interest.  Post-course support and collaboration will be available to continue simulation development.
