BioNetVisA workshop brings together different actors of network biology from database providers, networks creators, computational biologists, biotech companies involved in data analysis and modelling to experimental biologists, clinicians that use systems biology approaches. The participants are exposed to the different paradigms of network biology and the latest achievements in the field.


The goal of BioNetVisA workshop is to build a discussion around various approaches for biological knowledge formalisation, data integration and analysis; compatibility between different methods and biological networks resources available the field; applicability for concrete research and clinical projects depending on scientific question and type of high-throughput data.

The BioNetVisA workshop aims at identifying bottlenecks and proposing short- and long-term objectives for the community as discussing questions about accessibility of available tools for wide range of user in every-day standalone application in biological and clinical labs.

Target audience

The workshop targets computational systems biologists, molecular and cell biologists, clinicians and a wide audience interested in update and discussion around current status of network biology, pathway databases, and related analysis tools, including visualization, statistical analysis and dynamic modelling. No computational background is required to attend the workshop.
