The main goal of our Cell Modeling Hackathon series is to catalyze new collaborations.    Several of these collaborations launched at the QCBNet Hackathons have resulted in publications:


  • Berro J. (2018). “Essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful”—a cross-disciplinary agenda for building useful models in cell biology and biophysics. Biophys. Rev.. 10 (6), 1637.  DOI: 10.1007/s12551-018-0478-4
