Date: 12 and 13 October 2016
Aim of the Symposium:
Networks are a common theme in all biological processes. Animal brains are composed of structured neural circuits and the development of organs is regulated by tightly controlled gene regulatory networks. The fast propagation of disease vectors such as the Zika virus in South America within a human population is facilitated by a complex network of human interactions and nearly all living organisms are connected via food networks.
The organization and structure and thus the function of biological networks can rarely be directly studied. Therefore, different specialized approaches such as mathematical modelling, empirical studies or the combination of those are being developed in various biological disciplines. The main aim of the NETWORKS IN BIOLOGY conference is to bring researchers of different research fields together to reveal commonalities of different biological networks. A comprehensive understanding of the different applied methodologies will inevitably influence future research on network structures, organization and function
Registration is open until 5 August 2016. The Symposium is limited to 80 participants.
