Special session on “Parallel and distributed high-performance computing solutions in Systems Biology” hosted by PDP 2018 - Cambridge, UK
The aim of this special session at the Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-based Processing (PDP) is to bring together researchers involved in the development of computational methods specifically accelerated either by means of conventional architectures (e.g., computer clusters, GRID computing) or by unconventional technologies (e.g., Graphics Processing Units, Many Integrated Core coprocessors, cloud computing, biomimetic devices). The session will take place from March 21-23, 2018 in Cambridge, UK.

Building Minimal Cells: From non-essential gene identification to genome engineering - Villenave-d'Ornon, France
The goal of this workshop is to provide young investigators with cutting-edge training in the design and production of genome-reduced micro-organisms, for both fundamental and applied sciences. The course will take place from March 27-29, 2018 at the Institute of Vine & Wine Science in Villenave-d'Ornon, France. The registration deadline is March 1.
SNI/Biozentrum Lecture: The development of cryo-electron microscopy - Biozentrum, Basel
Last year, Prof. em. Jacques Dubochet, along with two other scientists, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing cryo-electron microscopy. In a symposium organized by the Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) and the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, Jacques Dubochet and two of his long-time colleagues, Ueli Aebi und Andreas Engel will provide fascinating insights into this technology. The symposium will take place in Lecture Hall 1, Klingelbergstrasse 50/70, Basel on April 11 from 16:00 - 18:00.
EMBO Workshop on Integrating Systems Biology: From Networks to Mechanisms to Models - Heidelberg, Germany
The EMBO workshop "Integrating Systems Biology: From Networks to Mechanisms to Models" serves as a European gathering point for the international network community and complements the biannual Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Networks meeting. Beyond classic network mapping and analysis, the conference aims to bridge the practical gap between network biology and quantitative modelling, as well as discuss current trends in network mapping and analysis.
