Metazoan Systems Biology Workshop


About the workshop

This workshop is intended to bring together C. elegans researchers using systems biology approaches, with systems biology researchers using other metazoan model organisms. The workshop will foster collaborations, through the sharing of unpublished results and discussion of projects, methods and ideas. This workshop, organized by COST BM1408, will be open to GENiE PIs and their group members, as well as anyone else who uses systems biology approaches in a metazoan model organism.



Up to 15 GENiE participants will be reimbursed for travel and accommodation by COST Action BM1408, according to COST regulations. BM1408 participants from ITC countries are automatically eligible for reimbursement. The workshop is limited to 30 participants.
