DLN has joined in as co-organizer of the Network Biology meeting organized by NORBIS and CCBIO. Highly renowned international speakers are confirmed for the meeting.
The functioning of living organisms is controlled by highly complex networks of interacting molecular components like signal transduction, protein-protein interaction, metabolic and gene regulatory networks. Disease analysis has recently undergone a paradigm shift due to the unprecedented amount of multiple omics data produced and the introduction of network science which moved understanding of disease etiology and progression from the level of single molecules to perturbations upon the complex intracellular network. Moreover, systems-level approaches integrate omics data from different sources as an effective means to deal with the high noise in each individual source and provide a more realistic cellular landscape. Integromics approaches have been shown to improve our comprehension of biological systems and enable more robust disease classification and discovery of biomarkers and drug targets.
The meeting/workshop is organized into plenary sessions from morning to afternoon (tentatively 3 pm) followed by hands-on sessions using computational tools for network analysis. For the last hands-on part we will have to prioritize members of the DLN Research School.
It will be free to attend the event and members of the DLN Research School can apply for support on travel and accommodation by following the link.
