MEDIA ADVISORY

New York University’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology will host a day-long symposium, “Evolving/Technology,” on Friday, May 15, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., at NYU’s Jurow Lecture Hall (Silver Center, 100 Washington Square East [at Washington Pl.], First Floor).

The lasting and seminal ideas proposed by Darwin in On the Origin of Species, published 150 years ago, are under investigation with a new set of techniques. The symposium features talks on new technologies and procedures being used to study molecular evolution and other fields of biology. For a complete schedule of speakers and presentations, click here. For more information, the public may call 212.998.8204.

The genome symposium, now in its eighth year, showcases 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.

Reporters interested in attending must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.


EDITOR’S NOTE: Faculty at NYU’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology are combining genomic and systems biology approaches to understand how changes in genomes give rise to the diversity of regulatory networks in microbes, animals, and plants.
