Yeast Systems Biology course

Learn about the latest research in the field of high throughput yeast systems biology. Speakers will not only give lectures in their area of expertise, but also demonstrate how they would mine their respective datasets to extract informative, high-confidence biological insight into the functions of the query proteins submitted by the participants.

This workshop is of high interest to not only students studying yeasts but also to those working on poorly characterized proteins in higher eukaryotes that have obvious homologues in budding yeast.

Organized by researchers from the Universities of Geneva (including NCCR Chemical Biology member Robbie Loewith), Fribourg and Lausanne.
