SUBMISSIONS AND EVALUATION CRITERIA

This conference is designed to present the latest findings about regulatory and systems genomics, foster discussion about current research directions, and establish new collaborations that will advance the development of a systems-level understanding of gene regulation. Some possible topics include:

  • Modeling and recognition of regulatory motifs and modules
  • Chromatin state establishment, maintenance, and role in development
  • Post-transcriptional regulation and small regulatory RNAs
  • Regulatory networks, metabolic networks, proteomic networks
  • Cellular signatures of biological responses and disease states
  • Phosphorylation, metabolic fluxes, systematic phenotyping
  • Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological systems
  • Methods for systematic validation of high-throughput biological predictions
  • Approaches for aggregation of results arising from different methodologies
  • Translational systems biology


Full-length papers

 
We invite full-length papers focusing either on research or theory. Selected papers for presentation in the conference will benefit from fast-track co-submission to Genome Research, G3: Genes / Genomes / Genetics and the Journal of Computational Biology. Learn more about submitting a paper here.
