Call for participation
Systems biology is a field in biology aiming at systems level understanding of biological processes. It is now an established and fundamental interdisciplinary research. Systems biology studies biological systems by systematically perturbing them (biologically, genetically, or chemically); monitoring the changes of genes, RNA, proteins, metabolites, and the related pathways and functional networks; integrating multiple domains of data; and ultimately, formulating mathematical models that describe the structure of the system and its response to specific perturbations. Integrated “-omics” approach has created exciting opportunities for systems biology researchers.
This workshop aims to provide a forum for discussion on integrated data analysis approach in systems biology research such as network and pathway analysis of -omics data, pattern recognition and prediction, modeling and simulation, and data representation and visualisation.
This workshop will feature the theme of ‘integrated approach’ and ‘complex biological system’. Research areas include, but are not limited to:
- Large-scale or cross-species data integration for the reconstruction of networks and pathways
- Genomic data analysis using systems biology approaches
- Quantitative understanding of dynamics of regulatory, signalling, interaction and metabolic networks through modelling and simulation techniques
- Prediction of protein/RNA structure and biological networks interactions
- Data integration and knowledge driven approach in biomarker identification and drug discovery
- Enhancement and enablement of knowledge discovery in functional genomics of disease and other phenotypes through integrated -omics approach
- Semantic webs and ontology-driven biological data integration methods
- Development of integrated systems biology visualisation and analysis tools
- Integrating cellular/ system interactions and physiological networks in systems medicine
We invite you to submit papers with unpublished, original research describing recent advances on the areas related to this workshop. All papers will undergo peer review by the conference program committee. All papers accepted will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available at the workshops. Authors of selected papers will be invited to extend their papers for submission to a special issue in International Journal of Computational Biology and Drug Design.
