First Prize at the Second International Biomodellling Competition Dagstuhl 2011
For the second time the International Biomodelling competition took place in Dagstuhl, April 10-15th 2011.
5 teams that had formed at Dagstuhl were working on dedicated biomodelling case studies during all afternoons and most nights of the Dagstuhl seminar. The results were presented Thursday, the 14th, afternoon. The youngest and the smallest team in the competition, i.e. Carsten Maus (PhD student in the GRK dIEM oSiRiS), Matthias Jeschke (Former PhD student in the GRK dIEM oSiRiS, and currently, Postdoc at DKFZ, University of Heidelberg), Antje Beyer (PhD student in the Executable Biology group (Microsoft Research), University of Cambridge, UK), and Kirill Batmanov (PhD student at the bioComputing group, University of Lille, France), were the first to present their results on "Synchronization of Cell Populations". Their multi-scale, multi-level approach utilizing diverse deterministic and stochastic methods convinced the jury and all participants.They won the first prize undisputedly.
Congratulations to all members of this team!
