Workshop 1: MLSB

Sixth International Workshop on Machine Learning in Systems Biology (MLSB)


Organizers: Karsten Borgwardt, Max Planck Institutes Tübingen & Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen;
Gunnar Rätsch
, Computational Biology Center, Sloan-Kettering Institute, New York
Date: Saturday, 8. September, and Sunday, 9 September, 2012
Room: Room "Sydney"
Congress Center Basel, Messeplatz 21


Biology is rapidly turning into an information science, thanks to enormous advances in the ability to observe the molecular properties of cells, organs and individuals. This wealth of data allows us to model molecular systems at an unprecedented level of detail and to start to understand the underlying biological mechanisms. This field of systems biology at the same time creates a huge need for methods from machine learning, which find statistical dependencies and patterns in large-scale datasets and that use them to establish models of complex molecular systems.

MLSB is a scientific forum for the exchange between researchers from Systems Biology and Machine Learning, to promote the exchange of ideas, interactions and collaborations between these communities. In 2012, MLSB will be co-located with ECCB in Basel, Switzerland.
