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 modules and motifs
  • Epigenomics, chromatin state
  • Non-coding Chromatin state establishment, maintenance, and role in development
  • Regulatory non-coding RNAs, transcriptional
  • Co-transcriptional, post-transcriptional, and translational regulation
  • Regulatory networks
  • Genetic, molecular, and phenotypic variation and human disease.
  • Cellular signatures of biological responses and disease states
  • Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological systems
  • Methods for systematic validation of high-throughput biological predictions
  • Single-cell biology, proteomics, signaling
  • Metabolomics
  • Ensemble approaches
  • 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, the Journal of Computational Biology and Molecular Systems Biology (EMBO Press). Learn more about submitting a paper here.

Abstracts


We invite one-page abstracts, including both original unpublished work and work that has been published or accepted for publication by a high-impact journal between January 1 and November 1, 2014.

Unpublished work will be considered for either an oral or poster presentation. Work already accepted for publication will be considered for an oral presentation only. Learn more about submitting an abstract here.

DREAM Challenges

Best performers in the two of the DREAM8.5 and the DREAM9 Challenges will be invited to present at the conference. These challenges invite the scientific community to address problems related to translational research and the reverse engineering of biological networks. For more information about the DREAM Challenges visit the DREAM Project.
