April 2-3, 2013
IRCM, Montréal (QC)
The meeting's program is now available.
Novel high-throughput technologies specifically designed for the study of living organisms as complex molecular systems have now made it possible to systematically identify and characterize the molecules and interactions underlying cellular pathways, tissues, organs and organisms. The combination of systems-level experimental approaches with the use of computational tools to integrate, visualize and analyze large-scale data sets is at the heart of an emerging research discipline termed Integrative or Systems Biology. Systems approaches are increasingly being used to obtain a quantitative and predictive understanding of fundamental biological questions and promises to have wide applications in medicine and other areas.
The 4th IRCM Meeting on Systems Biology will bring together scientists involved in experimental and computational studies of molecular networks. A selection of expert speakers will discuss the role of protein-protein, protein-DNA and protein-RNA interactions in the regulation of normal cellular functions and disease pathogenesis.
Organizers: Jacques Archambault, Benjamin Haibe-Kains, Marlene Oeffinger, Éric Lécuyer and François Robert
