Meeting: Gene Regulation and Information Theory

April 17-19, 2013, Martin Luther University, Halle-Wittenberg

We are pleased to announce the first meeting on Gene Regulation and Information Theory taking place at Halle/Saale, Germany, from April 17 through April 19, 2013. Modern biology is under change. New experimental techniques now allow measuring biological processes with high precision, leading to an avalanche of high-throughput data, but also to the exciting opportunity of answering fundamental scientific questions that could not be addressed in the past. The development of new theoretical concepts, modern methods for data analysis, and mathematical models has started to play a central role in this adventure. Moreover, the emergence of truly interdisciplinary research teams uniting scientists from very different fields under one roof have started to change the way in which research in the biosciences is being conducted. The meeting intends to stimulate such interdisciplinary collaborations by bringing together scientists from molecular biology, information theory, and related areas who are interested in analyzing and modelling biological processes, this time with a special focus on the exciting and rapidly evolving field of gene regulation.
