11th Annual International Symposium Addresses Systems Biology and the Microbiome

Join a distinguished group of researchers and experts in Seattle for Institute for Systems Biology’s (ISB) 11th Annual Symposium, a two-day dialogue about the microbiome and how using a systems approach can help decipher some of its complexities.

The Symposium will take place on April 15-16, 2012, at ISB’s state-of-the-art facilities in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. We welcome all who are interested in hearing from microbiome researchers from institutions such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)-Heidelberg and University of California-Davis.
