Symposium On Network Models In Cellular Regulation

Network Models in Cellular Regulation Zaragoza, Spain, June 1st (a satellite of the International Network Science Conference NetSci2015)

The symposium, co-sponsored by BLUEPRINT, will explore recent advances in understanding the interplay between regulatory network structure, epigenetics and cellular function from three different points of views:

* Regulatory network structure, dynamics on small to large scales, and regulatory network evolution
* Design principles and biological noise in small regulatory circuits
* Epigenetics in cellular regulation – How do epigenetic regulatory mechanisms interface with signalling and transcription to dictate cellular outcomes?

The meeting will feature selected abstract presentations (submit before April 5th) and it will finish with a panel discussion on the future of mechanistic modeling in biology:
