ISB 2016


Theme and Scope

The 10th International Conference on Systems Biology (ISB 2016), organized by Computational Systems Biology Society of ORSC will be held in Weihai, China, August 19-22, 2016. The conference is supported and sponsored by Academy of Mathematics and Systems Sciences of CAS (AMSS), Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences of CAS (SIBS), Shandong University (SDU), National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Functional Genome Informaics and Systems Biology Society of CSCB, Systems Biology Technical Committee of IEEE SMC Society.

Systems Biology and Bioinformatics have become intensive research topics in the recent past decade and attracted great many leading scientists working in Biology, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. Optimization, Statistics, and many other mathematical methods have been widely used in the field. Following the successful ISB conferences series from 2007, the purpose of ISB conferences series is to extend the international forum for scientists, researchers, educators, and practitioners to exchange ideas and approaches, to present research findings and state-of-the-art solutions in this interdisciplinary field, including mathematical methods and its applications in biosciences and researches on various aspects of Systems Biology, such as integration of genome-wide microarray, proteomic, and metabolomic data, inference and comparison of biological networks, and model testing through design of experiments.

Themes of the ISB 2016 will be interdisciplinary by its nature and focus on bridging opportunities between mathematical methods and Systems Biology studies. We are particularly interested in submissions that report on theoretical, experimental and applied research motivated by systems biology problems. Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest are:

  • Gene Regulatory Networks
  • Protein Interaction Networks
  • Metabolic Networks
  • Signaling Networks
  • Comparative Genomics
  • Functional Genomics
  • Metagenomics
  • Genome-Wide Association Study
  • Promoter Analysis and Discovery
  • Biomarker Identification and Drug Discovery
  • Evolution and Phylogenetics
  • Non-coding RNAs
