Computational Systems Immunology Workshop
16 – 20 DECEMBER, 2019
Workshop presented by Magnus Fontes, focused on the use of bioinformatics for immuno-oncology.
Organizers: Immunoregulation and Inflammation Lab – Unit of Bioinformatics (IP Montevideo)
Magnus Fontes is a PhD in Mathematics and principal scientist at Genentech in South San Francisco where he is head of the group in Reverse Translation and Computational Systems Immunology within the Department of Cancer Immunology.
Fontes is an expert in modeling, analysis and visualization of complex systems, with a main focus on biological systems, notably modeling of viral and cancer evolution. He holds a professorships in Clinical Bioinformatics at Copenhagen University and at Genomic Medicine at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen.
The workshop covers contemporary and emerging topics within computational and systems immunology, with a focus on integrative analysis of multi omics data including flow cytometry, mass cytometry, single cell RNA-seq, scDNA-seq as well as TCR and BCR repertoire data.
