The goal of systems biology is to understand the emergent properties of a biological system by measuring and analysing its many individual components. Yet, there remain steep challenges in the analysis of these collective data, particularly in terms of integrating the information derived from across the different planes of biology.
To push back on these challenges, we are pleased to announce the Cutting-edge Symposium on Integrated Systems Biology: Challenges and Future Perspectives. This symposium is a chance to learn about the most recent developments in integrated systems biology and their application. It will also offer a forum to identify and then work together to address the challenges associated with this discipline. This forum will take the community forward in an effort to develop truly integrative systems biology research tools that maximises the utility of this practice and the impact that it can help to deliver.
The symposium will be a residential event to be held at the Brisbane Convention Centre from October 25-27 2021, as well as offered virtually.
It will be attended by delegates from across government, industry as well as academia, with an exciting line up of invited speakers.
