Exhibitor and Sponsor Information

What is systems biology?

A living organism is an interacting network of genes, proteins and biochemical reactions. The field of genomics aims to generate comprehensive maps of the genomes of model systems as well as humans and to tease out the functions and interactions of the vast number of genes in those genomes. Systems biologists study genomes by looking at all of the components of the cell and the interactions among them.

History: the International Conference on Systems Biology is the annual series of conferences initiated by Hiroaki Kitano in Tokyo in 2000. A catalyst for international collaboration in Systems Biology – meeting were recently held in Mannheim/Heidelberg 2011, Edinburgh 2010 and Stanford 2009.

The ICSB attracts the world’s top systems biologists and welcomes this talent to an environment that encourages integration of biology, computer science, engineering and chemistry, and that spans leading areas of biomedical research. The vital importance of international collaboration in modern science, and its scientists are at the heart of the ICSB2012.

In 2011, the ICSB attracted over 1000 of the world’s top systems biologists. Over half submitted posters. ICSB 2012 in Toronto is a vital initiative to celebrate and disseminate the recent achievements and ground breaking research in this diverse field. Sponsors can take pride in knowing that they are providing researchers today with the significant support they need to find a cure tomorrow.
