Systems biology, post-genomic analysis and emerging technologies

This section will consider studies on all aspects of the function of biological systems at the molecular and cellular level, in particular those addressing network modeling, quantitative analyses and the integration of different levels of information. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, deep sequencing-based technologies, computational biology and machine learning in relation to cancer biology.
