The International Study Group of Systems Biology (ISGSB) organizes biannual workshops where new developments in systems biology research are discussed among PIs, postdocs and PhD students. The Study Group is specialized in the ‘bottom-up’ branch of Systems Biology, which concerns the detailed molecular mechanisms that lead to emergent biological properties. New developments in technology and modelling, however, bring the genome-wide top-down approach ever closer to the bottom-up approach. The ISGSB stimulates intensive interaction between the different approaches to systems biology.
The meeting was held between on September 25 – 28, 2012. in Ameland, the Netherlands.
