Positive experience from the previous FEBS SysBio course in Gossau 2007 was strong motivation for Egils Stalidzans to apply for possibility to participate in that kind of course again.

Unforgettable memories will stay from the intensive open discussions regarding the possibility, necessity and timing of development of virtual biochemical human. It was fun to follow contradicting arguments of very famous scientists. Another emotional peak was the lecture of Dennis Noble that was followed by present of personally signed book of him “The Music of Life”. Downhill skiing was not forgotten also at this conference.
