The 13th International Conference on Systems Biology
August 19-23, 2012 in Toronto Canada
The International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB) provides an annual authoritative overview of the latest developments in systems biology. ICSB 2012 will be centred on the University of Toronto campus in the heart of beautiful downtown Toronto.
The organizers of ICSB 2012 include Charlie Boone, Brenda Andrews, Gary Bader, Cynthia Colby, Tim Hughes, Fritz Roth, Corey Nislow, Sachdev Sidhu, Michael Snyder, Hiroaki Kitano, Edda KIipp, Roy Kishony, Stephen Michnick, Anne-Claude Gavin, Stephan Hohmann, Michael Hucka, and Roland Eils.
There will be more than 20 parallel sessions that will involve invited chairs and numerous presentations selected from the abstracts of meeting participants. The sessions will centre on topics involving systems biology approaches to next generation sequencing, genetic networks, computational tools and algorithms, chemical biology, personalized medicine, plant sciences, protein interaction networks, protein engineering, gene expression, modelling and experimental design, and others.
In addition to the science program, we will offer creative inspiration on other levels. We've planned a number of musical events with international artists, a poster session with a beer tasting from some of the finest Canadian microbreweries, a conference dinner at the picturesque and eco friendly Toronto Brickworks, and much more. ICSB 2012 will close with an optional trip to one of the seven nature wonders of the world - Niagara Falls. Come and join us to make this a most meaningful opportunity!
