Our team regularly organises meetings, workshops and other kinds of events. That boosts collaboration and is key to our success!
Mathematical models of cellular pathways are essential tools in systems biology and systems medicine. They contribute to an understanding of structure and dynamics of cellular processes far beyond their isolated parts, as well as the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of diseases. Yet, there are a variety of open questions.
The International Conference on Integrative Pathway Modelling in Systems Biology and Systems Medicine will gather experts in pathway modelling to discuss the state-of-the-art in reuse, integration, visualization, and parameterization of models.

This workshop intends to introduce the graphical, web-based Galaxy RNA-workbench (https://usegalaxy.org) for customized analysis of RNA-Seq data. Therefore, we will present Linux and Docker backgrounds, introduce methods for exploration of NGS data and fundamental statistics. In practical tutorials, workflow development, functional predictions of RNAs and visualization strategies for metatranscriptomic data will be trained.
RNA-Sequencing (RNA-Seq) has become a widely used approach to study quantitative and qualitative aspects of transcriptome data. The variety of RNA-Seq protocols, experimental study designs and the obtained data processing strategies greatly affect downstream and comparative analyses. Unless the low entrance barriers and easy-to-use experimental protocols, the challenge of proper, transparent and reproducible data analyses are still a bottleneck. With respect to the number of data analysis steps, the complexity of decisions on tool selection is increasing likewise.
We will demonstrate state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques as well as the latest data analyses tools and disease related databases at the 1st Conference of the European Association of Systems Medicine in Berlin (26th - 28th October 2016).
