Symposia Session II
Conference Room E1/E2

Systems Biology – A Multi-method, Multi-scale Perspective for Cell Research
2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Co-Chairs: Eric Billings, NHLBI and Martin Meier-Schellersheim, NIAID

Sponsored by:  Systems Biology Special Interest Group

There is an increasing interest in ‘systems biological’ approaches that elucidate the properties of biological systems at different levels, using multiple methodologies to understand how the interactions between their constituents determine these systems’ behaviors. One of the great challenges in Systems Biology is to identify how different methodologies may complement each other and how the interfaces between them can be established.  The purpose of the session will be to offer a series of talks presenting research approaches that are be ideally suited to serve as building blocks for a systems biological perspective of cell biology.
