Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China

 Aim and Scope 

It is increasingly recognised that a systems approach, involving computational and experimental scientists, is necessary to understand the mechanisms resulting in important human diseases such as cancer. This multidisciplinary approach requires the pooling of expertise from different laboratories on an international level. The primary aim of this workshop is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and establishment of collaborations between computational scientists and biologists from Germany and China. Scientists from these countries, as well as a few leading experts from other countries, will present and discuss cutting-edge computational and experimental systems biology research methodology and findings concerning cancer research and biomarker discovery. The purpose of this workshop is to facilitate exchange of ideas and collaborations between computational scientists and biologists between China and Germany, by presenting cutting-edge computational and systems biology research findings on cancer research and biomarkers discovery. We anticipate that the workshop will promote:

  • Research collaborations in computational systems biology approaches for cancer research between Germany and China
  • Exchange of scientists, especially young scientists, in the field of computational systems biology between Germany and China

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Computational tools for protein-protein interaction
  • Computational approaches to analysis genomics and proteomics data
  • Systems biology approaches for cancer biomarker discovery


Registration is open and free. Interested Chinese Ph.D students are welcome to join us.

All interested Chinese scientists working on related topics are welcome to take part in this workshop. We still have a couple of slots for talks. If you would like to present your work at this workshop, please send an e-mail to bingding.huang@eml-r.villa-bosch.de.
