Among the most fundamental questions in the Life Sciences are how biological systems are formed from the interaction of genes and how evolutionary forces shape the adaptation of living organisms to different environments. The goal of the NYUAD Genomics and Systems Biology V symposium is to better understand these interactions. The investigators' approach is to apply cutting-edge genomic technologies to areas such as biodiversity, bioenergy, the complexity of neuronal systems, and chemical and functional genomics.
