Tuesday, June 24th over 90 people participated in the Symposium Systems Biology for Food, Feed, and Health in Hotel Wageningsche Berg.
This symposium was organised by the Wageningen Centre for Systems Biology. Eight renowned scientists covered topics on different biological levels: from intracellular regulations via formation of cell tissue to the dynamic behaviour of ecosystems. The symposium was opened by Prof. Jaap Molenaar who presented the specific approach to Systems Biology at Wageningen University and closed by Prof. Vitor Martins Dos Santos who gave an overview about the development of the European Systems Biology infrastructure. During the poster session students had the possibility to present their research.
Participants listened critically and posed many questions to each speaker. The success of the meeting encourages us to organise this symposium again next year. Hope to see you there!
