February 7 - 9, 2017
NYUAD Campus, Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi
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, biorenewables and metabolism, 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 seventh NYUAD Genomics & Systems Biology symposium and one of the leading symposia on modern biology in the region. NYUAD Genomics & Systems Biology VII will explore cutting edge questions and approaches on diverse topics.
