The theme of the 22nd IUBMB and 37th FEBS Congress is 'from single molecules to systems biology'. Based on recent spectacular advances in the ‘-omic’ disciplines and in information technology, multidisciplinarity and integration have become the key features of post-genomic and proteomic research. Genes, gene products, their regulatory networks and their interactions with their environment must be analysed not only at the molecular level, but also as components of higher order structures, metabolic pathways or entire cells and organisms. This branch of research, termed ‘Systems Biology’, combines concepts from molecular biology, engineering sciences, mathematics and information technology into a holistic approach to complex biological systems such as living cells. To support these advances, the 2012 IUBMB and FEBS Congress aims to promote an integrative and holistic approach to research on biological processes. Multidisciplinarity, interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity will thus be essential characteristics of this meeting.
The full IUBMB-FEBS programme is available from their website.
