NYU's "Systems Biology Across All Scales" Symposium Explores the Field's Big Questions, May 30


The genome symposium, now in its seventh year, will showcase research at the frontiers of systems biology, spanning the scales of biological organization-from dynamics of single molecules in individual cells to genetic pathways in complex organisms to collective behavior of animal groups-in demonstrating how systems biology brings diverse approaches to bear on the big questions of biology.
