EMBO Conference: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology

08 Nov 2014 - 11 Nov 2014 - Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


This conference brings together people from diverse disciplines to exchange ideas, promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches.

The meeting is therefore purposely broad to cover all aspects of genomics to systems biology, a unique combination that is highly appreciated by the participants. 

Over the past decade, this EMBO conference has played an important role in helping to shape the field and generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.

Topics

o Transcription, chromatin and nucleosomes

o 3D structure, epigenetics

o Post-transcriptional regulation and non-coding RNA

o Proteomics, protein-protein interaction networks, metabolites

o Genetic interaction networks

o Single cell variation, biological noise

o Systems Genetics, genotype to phenotype

o Human genome variation

o Data integration, modelling and prediction

New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
Understanding the Molecular Origin of Epigenetic Markers
Researchers at IRB Barcelona discover the molecular mechanism that determines how epigenetic markers influence gene expression.
New Tech Enables Epigenomic Analysis with a Mere 100 Cells
A new technology that will dramatically enhance investigations of epigenomes, the machinery that turns on and off genes and a very prominent field of study in diseases such as stem cell differentiation, inflammation and cancer has been developed by researchers at Virginia Tech.
Access Denied: Leukemia Thwarted by Cutting Off Link to Environmental Support
A new study reveals a protein’s critical – and previously unknown -- role in the development and progression of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a fast-growing and extremely difficult-to-treat blood cancer.
