Omics Meets Cell Biology
Organizer(s): Anne-Claude Gavin and Charlie M. Boone
Date: May 08 - 13, 2011
Location: Alpbach Congress Centrum, Alpbach, Austria
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Whole genome sequencing has become widespread and modern biologists currently access exponentially growing lists of genomes from organisms covering all three domains of life. This has fundamentally changed the way scientists address biological questions. A spectacular flourishing of technologies allows for global interrogation of gene activity and function and ever more comprehensive measurement of cellular macromolecules. These Omics approaches are still in full expansion but already increasingly contribute to the editing and annotation of systems-level networks charting physical and functional links between all cellular components. Nevertheless, an important challenge resides in the interpretation and integration of the data within the context of the whole physiology of a cell. We are for example, still learning and developing the bioinformatic tools to store and integrate different types of datasets. Emerging biochemical and chemical approaches contribute chemical tools and affinity reagents to systematically interrogate or perturb macromolecules within a cell. Live-cell imaging and quantitative microscopy have also moved large-scale allowing unprecedented phenotypic analysis. This conference will bring together the leading experts representing Omics technologies, cell biology, chemical-genetics, and bioinformatics to discuss and present these latest developments.
