9th International EMBL PhD Student Symposium
October 25 - 27, 2007, Heidelberg, Germany
Have you ever wondered what sets your biological clock? How is your DNA
arranged within its nucleus? How does intracellular communication work?
How do neural networks develop? How are body plans formulated? How do
birds know where to fly to during the winter?
The common theme underlying these questions is biological patterns. Many
aspects of our lives are regulated by these patterns, from the molecular
to the macroscopic scale. Patterns play a central role in animal behaviour,
the control of the cell cycle and cell morphogenesis, the structure of proteins,
the sequence of DNA and proteins, and many more aspects of biology. Though some
of these patterns are well characterized, there are others that we are only
beginning to understand.
The goal of this year's International EMBL
PhD Student Symposium will be to present and discuss these patterns.
Our objective is to bring together research students and leading scientists from
diverse backgrounds, in order to facilitate interaction between different research
areas involving patterns in biology.
