4th CNRS-MPG joint workshop on Systems Biology

Objectives of the Workshop:
This is the 4th joint CNRS and MPG Workshop on Systems Biology. The workshops in this series aim at giving an overview of the advances and challenging research topics in this field, in order to stimulate and facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers, in particular those from the two organizations. This workshop will in particular address the fundamental question in systems biology of how the interaction, regulation, and coordination of molecular processes leads to (a diversity of) coherent phenotypes at the cellular level, and we shall be looking at control by structures, by molecules and by network properties.
