Developing a global understanding of the PRC and NuRD complexes in stem cell differentiation and in disease

Integrative and Computational Biology Symposium, Barcelona 2014


Registration required!

How can we computationally integrate large datasets to address fundamental questions in biology?

We are now able to study how chromatin is organized in cells, how this organization changes during development, how chromatin and genomes are altered in cancer and how cancer genomes evolve. The big challenge that we now face is how to exploit all this data in meaningful ways and analyse it in order to transform it to basic knowledge and also to translate it to a better understanding of diseases. This knowledge will eventually lead to better diagnostics for diseases such as cancer, better predictions for prognosis and personalized treatments.

This conference is scientifically organized by Ana Rojas, Ben Lehner, and Tanya Vavouri.


Open to the public with advanced registration

4DCellFate and the Institute of Predictive and Personalized Medicine (IMPCC) will host this conference, which is open to the public but requires registration. This event will be held at the PRBB (in which the CRG is located) and is the V Annual Conference for the IMPCC. Partial travel grants will be offered to a limited number of graduate and postdoctoral scientists; please refer to the IMPCC registration page for more information.


Gender-balanced computational biology symposium: the first ever?

We would also like to announce that, to our knowledge, this is the first computational biology conference with a balanced ratio of women and men speakers.


Mar 27 to Mar 28
