Conference Genomics & Systems Biology IV

Open to the Public

Date

Time 9:00am - 5:30pm

Location Intercontinental Hotel Auditorium, Abu Dhabi

Among the most fundamental questions in the life sciences is how biological systems are built from the interactions of genomically encoded elements and how natural selection works at the network level to enable living organisms to adapt to very different environments. This conference explores these questions in relation to state-of-the-art research carried out in the areas of metabolism and bioenergy, biodiversity, complexity of neuronal development, chemical and functional genomics, and computational biology.
