Coronavirus information for participants

The onsite course and conference programme at EMBL has been paused until the end of June 2020.


We aim to continue offering our advanced training for the scientific community however we safely can. While some events have been cancelled, many have been rescheduled for a later date and others will be delivered as virtual events.


Registration is open for onsite courses and conferences starting after 1 July and for the virtual events. All registration fees for any events which don’t take place due to the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.

Conference Overview

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.

Session Topics

  • 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
