Closing Conference of BioSysNet

Current Topics in Molecular Systems Biology

When: March 14th and 15th 2018


Where: Römerforum in the BioSysM Building

             Butenandt Str. 1, 81377 Munich

The conference is organized by the Bavarian Research Network for Molecular Biosystems and will bring together scientists working interdisciplinary in the fields of systems biology including biochemistry, genetics and bioinformatics. We want to present the projects of the junior research groups and the the established groups in our network, domiciled at the universities and university clinics in Munich, Erlangen, Regensburg and Wurzburg. There will be presentations and discussions about the latest results achieved through the analysis of the complex interactions in biological systems.
