Regulation and Inference in Biological Systems
Mon, 02/02/2015 (All day) - Fri, 06/02/2015 (All day)
Advances in experimental technologies deeply transformed the world of biological research over the last decade. Remarkable examples of data obtained using such technologies include - but are not limited to - thousands of fully sequenced genomes, genome-wide measurements of gene expression or methylation profiles and experimental determination of genome-scale protein-protein interaction networks. Due to the nature of the problems involved, the progress of experimental and bioinformatical techniques has been often uneven: the amount of data requires in many cases the solution of hard problems which are intractable by conventional computational tools. The central themes of the conference will be the computational and information-theoretic aspects of network biology with the aim of presenting the state of the art in many research fields that in the last years have seen a relevant burst of activity.
