Genomics and Systems Biology VI
Conference Genomics and Systems Biology VI

Open to the Public


Location NYUAD Saadiyat Island Campus

Systems biology aims to identify and understand the mechanisms that transform genomic information into cellular and organismal behavior using a global perspective. In their own research programs, the organizers of this symposium apply cutting-edge genomic technology and systems-level approaches to areas including biodiversity, bioenergy, the complexity of neuronal systems and chemical and functional genomics. The internationally distinguished speakers invited for this year’s Symposium reflect these diverse research areas. This is the sixth NYUAD Genomics & Systems Biology symposium and one of the leading symposia on modern biology in the region.
