Inaugural National Short Course in Computational Biophotonics, 12-16 August 2013
Each day of the short course is structured around a biomedical “theme”; together these themes span a broad range of current biomedical research activity. Morning sessions will feature two lectures, the first providing biomedical context for the daily theme and the second describing models and computational approaches keyed to the theme. Afternoons will be devoted to demonstrations of the daily biomedical technology, hands-on computational laboratories using the unique Virtual Tissue Simulator computational platform, trainee presentations, and moderated discussions. The new Short Course builds upon the success of annual Virtual Photonics Workshops held at UC Irvine.
VTS GUI Application
The version of the GUI used in the short course can be accessed here (Note: This is a Silverlight application which may no longer work in your browser, the labs can be completed using our current software from GitHub but be aware that the instructions may differ slightly).
