05.08.11 Systems Genetics Workshop in Heidelberg

Systems genetics: from statistical genetics to mechanistic models in systems biology

Andreas Beyer (TU Dresden), Julien Gagneur (EMBL Heidelberg) and Oliver Stegle (MPI for Developmental Biology, MPI for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen) are organising a satellite workshop for the International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB 2011). The workshop brings together different communities that overlap with the emerging field of systems genetics. This includes theoreticians and practitioners, and will deal with applications to human and model organisms. Mapping of single traits such as disease to high-dimensional molecular phenotypes such as gene expression will be discussed. The aim is to share insights on important problems that are relevant to multiple fields and ultimately to establish connections and collaborations between the respective communities.
