People should be in time, since buses cannot stop there for too long. Evening: 19h40 leaving from the EML, back down, along the railway station to convention center and, on request, other places.)


Abstract (cf. and )

In June 2004 a world-wide alliance was formed of scientists interested in the integration of yeast systems biology (cf. ). The Yeast Systems Biology Network will facilitate cooperation between experimental yeast researchers and theoreticians alike on this topic. One aim is a silicon yeast cell but above all the object is understanding of the principles of Systems Biology obtained by a focus on a single important unicellular organism. S. cerevisiae is a prime candidate for such an initiative.

On the one hand the workshop will report some recent developments in yeast systems biology, but on the other hand it will render the progress made by the YSBN working groups on data acquisition and databases, modeling and simulation, training courses, dissemination. The detailed program will appear on the above website. For registration or suggestions of presentations please contact or or with YSBNICSB on the subject line.
