Student Symposium on Computational Genomics

30 November 2016

The first Student Symposium on Computational Genomics will take place on 30 November 2016 at the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) in Mainz, Germany.

The symposium is organized by enthusiastic PhD students and scheduled as a satellite event to the subsequent computational conference entitled “Challenges in Computational Biology: Gene Expression Data Analysis” starting the day after at the same location.

Their aim is to provide early career researchers the opportunity to present and discuss their work, challenges, and ideas within a scientific forum of peers and leading experts  in the field of computational biology. The main topics include

  • Systems biology of gene regulation
  • Epigenomics, stem cell biology and differentiation
  • Higher order chromatin structure
  • Integration of multilevel datasets and prediction algorithms

This meeting has been organised in association with the 2nd Challenges in Computational Biology meeting on gene expression and data analysis on 1-2 December 2016.
