Systems Biology symposium announcement


Systems Biology: Integrative, Comparative, and Multi-Scale Modeling
June 11-14, 2009
The 18th Annual Growth Factor and Signal Transduction Conference

PROGRAM:  Systems Biology is an exciting, emerging discipline at the interface of biological and informational sciences. Over the past several decades, biologists have been accumulating detailed knowledge of the building blocks of biological systems e.g., DNA, RNA, genes, proteins, cells, tissues, organs, organisms, and ecologies. Genomics has provided us with an enormous collection of molecular parts. Anatomical, physiological, molecular, cellular, and structural approaches to biology have begun to transform our understanding of how these specific parts of living things function. However, biological systems are more than simply a collection of molecules, cells, or organs. We need to understand how these parts work together to form dynamic functional units so that we can precisely describe, model, and simulate biological systems.

The Unified Data Resource for CryoEM Project Team are pleased to announce improvements to EM Databank deposition and retrieval services hosted by PDBe (Europe) and RCSB PDB (USA).

Joint Map + Model Deposition

Map deposition has been integrated with fitted coordinate model deposition to the PDB. Upon completion of an EMDEP3 map deposition session, the user is presented with the option to deposit one or more coordinate models to the PDB using AUTODEP (PDBe) or ADIT (RCSB PDB). Experiment-related metadata is automatically transferred to the PDB coordinate deposition session.

After several months of work our team is glad to announce a new version of free and open-source UGENE bioinformatics suite.

Version 1.4 adds 4 new plugins and brings numerous improvements and bug fixes.

New plugins: restriction enzymes support, complete Smith-Waterman algorithm, repeats analysis and exportable sequence and alignment statistics.

                        CALL FOR PAPERS

     Higher School of Sciences and Technologies of Tunis (Tunisia) And Faculty of Applied Sciences, Bucharest (Romania)


     Biological Knowledge Discovery from Databases (BIOKDD'09) Workshop held in parallel with

           20th International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications (DEXA'09)

                University of Linz, Austria - August 31 - September 4, 2009

With the development of Biology during the last decades, we are witnessing an exponential growth of both the volume and the complexity of biological databases. For example, the Human Genome Project provided the sequence of the 3 billion DNA bases that constitute the human genome. And, consequently, we are provided too with the sequences of about 100,000 proteins. Therefore, we are entering the post-genomic era : After having focused so much efforts on the accumulation of biological data in databases, we have now to focus as much efforts, and even more, on the analysis of these data. Analyzing this huge volume of biological data stored in databases is a challenging task because, not only, of its complexity and its multiple numerous correlated factors, but also, because of the continuous evolution of our understanding of the biological structural and evolutionary mechanisms. Knowledge Discovery from Databases (KDD) is a response to these new trends.
