7th International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics (ISNB 2010)

22 Apr 2010 to 23 Apr 2010

The 7th International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics (ISNB 2010) is scheduled on 22 and 23 April 2010 and is likely to continue its success from previous years in bringing different disciplines together to discuss ongoing research in bioinformatics and biology of networks.

The focus of 7th International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics will be on biological networks such as metabolic networks, signal transduction pathways and genetic regulatory networks.

This year the aim is to include topics like modeling of cells, tissues, gene regulation and biomineralisation. The organisation also wants to invite researchers working on gene networks in plants (e.g. Arabidopsis), model organisms such as Drosophila and organisms with a relatively simple and basal body plan such as sponges and scleractinian corals. Understanding of these networks is crucial for understanding molecular and cellular processes in the organism or system under study. This field is subject of lively research and both experimental and computational approaches are used to elucidate the biological networks. The bioinformatics of biological networks involves a broad range of research and approaches. Research includes the identification of regulatory elements in DNA, developmental biology, genome context analysis, modelling and simulation of pathways, reconstruction of pathways from experimental data, visualization of pathways, and the representation of pathways in database, graphs and mark-up languages.

The program of ISNB2010 is now available on the conference website mentioned below.
