Workshop on Statistical Systems Biology - 9-11 December 2014



The increasing sophistication of high-throughput molecular technologies offers exciting possibilities for systems-level analysis of biological systems. Yet such novel and diverse data are frequently accompanied by significant statistical and computational challenges.

This meeting aims to bring together researchers operating at the interface of systems biology, mathematical modelling and statistics, in order to better leverage emerging data using state-of-the-art statistical methodologies.

Published Proceedings

In partnership with Statistical Applications in Genetics and Molecular Biology (De Gruyter) we are soliciting high-quality research articles for joint journal submission and presentation at the workshop. In addition, we are encouraging the submission of contributed presentations and posters in relevant research areas.

Themes for this workshop include, but are not limited to,

  • data-driven models for cellular signalling and information processing
  • novel analysis of advanced sequencing data
  • models for single cell imaging data
  • kinetic models; advances in parameter estimation and structure learning
  • integration of multiple heterogeneous data sources
  • network analysis for multivariate biological data
  • models for cellular stochasticity
  • advances in normalisation and testing for high-throughput data
