Despite omics’ BIG DATA, molecular biology is not yet able to understand complex biological functions, cell factories, and multifactorial diseases (cancer, neurodegeneration).
The School will explicate Systems Biology’s experimental and computational approaches that together will enable the participant to begin to tackle the complex networks of life, hands-on. Computable representations of systems biology integration are about to unleash revolutions in fundamental biology, predictable biotechnology and individualized medicine.
