EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic
With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.
Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
Recent advances in genomics and proteomics technologies have transformed our ability to study diverse molecular processes. We can now use these technologies to study and understand mechanisms regulating transcription, translation, protein abundance, protein-protein, protein-metabolites and protein-drug interactions at a genome- and proteome-wide scale. The current challenge is to convert this data into predictive quantitative models of cellular processes. This massive task requires intensive integration of basic biology, genomics, proteomics, imaging, computational biology, mathematics, engineering and physics.
This conference brings together scientists from diverse fields to promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches. We aim to get people out of their comfort zones, to hear new cutting-edge research in diverse areas to form new ideas. Over the past decade, this conference has served as an important venue to help shape the field and to generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.
- Single cell genomics
- Gene expression
- Systems genetics, genotype to phenotype
- Proteomics and drug discovery
- High resolution imaging, multiplexed quantitative imaging
- Network analysis and data modelling

What Past Participants Say about the Conference
"It was an excellent meeting, with diverse topics, top quality line-up of invited speakers and outstanding overall quality of the talks. You really have the feeling that the boundaries of knowledge have been pushed forward before your very eyes." - Mirko Francesconi, LBMC ENS-Lyon, France
"Must attend conference, offering ample chances to the meet leaders in diverse fields, in a stunning venue." - Emanuel Goncalves, Wellcome Sanger Institute, UK
