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.


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
