Systems Biology Conference 2017
October 25 - 26, 2017
Lipsett Auditorium (Building 10)
Description

We are delighted to welcome you to the website for the 2017 Systems Biology Symposium. This conference will bring together leading experts in the field to discuss cutting-edge research in five key areas of systems biology:

Single-cell epigenomics: Cellular heterogeneity in a homogeneous population of cells has been extensively studied by single-cell transcriptomics. However, the mechanisms that underlie the extraordinary heterogeneity is not well understood. Recent progress in single-cell epigenomics has begun to reveal a chromatin basis for the observed heterogeneity in gene expression. This session will focus on recent developments of single-cell epigenomic techniques and their applications to various biological systems.

Imaging-based systems biology: Integrative, multi-scaled imaging approaches have provided critical insight into the signaling, communication, and distribution systems within cells, tissues, and organisms. Presentations in this session will feature recent developments in the visualization and assessment of spatial and temporal interactions and connectivity both within and across cells. 

Quantitative and integrative proteomics: The past decade has seen striking advances in technical approaches to protein mass spectrometry, allowing systems biologists to carry out proteome-wide quantification of protein abundances and post-translational modifications. This session will focus on cutting-edge methodologies for quantitative proteomics and large-scale integration of proteomic data with other data types.

Systems biology of metabolism:  Metabolic profiling has rapidly evolved due to many technical advances.  Metabolomics often is coupled with genomic or proteomic profiling to provide novel insight into elucidating biomarkers and disease mechanisms.  This session will focus on novel metabolic pathways involved in cardiovascular disease.

Large-scale data integration: Large, complex data sets are a pervasive feature of systems biology.  Presentations and discussions will focus on new approaches to combine and analyze disparate types of ‘omics’ data, to design algorithms that minimize computational time and reduce search space, and to construct informative and predictive biological networks from the data.

We invite you to the National Institutes of Health to discuss recent developments in systems biology and to contribute to future successes.  To learn more about this exciting symposium, please consult the detailed agenda and biographies of our featured speakers.  The site also includes registration details.  You will also find details of how to share your own research by submitting an abstract for a poster presentation (abstract deadline: September 20th).

We hope you will be able to join us in Bethesda in October!
