Include but are not limited to:
- Systems Dynamics
- Computational Approaches to Complex Systems
- Medical Systems Biology
- Microbial Systems Biology
- Metabolic Engineering
- Genome Design
- Next Generation tools for Systems Biology
- Synthetic Biology
- Network Biology
- Biological Complexity
The scientific agenda will therefore reflect new engineering approaches to acquiring, processing and modelling large scale datasets. Topics include, but are not limited to advances in omic technology, integrative modelling, engineering approaches in biosciences (single cell/molecule measurements, microfluidics), noise, cellular dynamics and biological networks. Along with our international steering committee we are now putting together an exciting program. In addition we will have lectures from internationally renowned Systems Biologists who will talk at the beginning of each session. The end of each session will be devoted to up-and-coming scientists and students selected from abstracts. Selected speakers are also requested to present a poster and may be eligible for the FOSBE presentation award. The poster sessions will be held next to the main auditorium. A FOSBE 2012 schedule can be downloaded here.
