Systems Biology: From Molecules to Life

March 10-16, 2007
Sport & Erlebnis Hotel Gosau****, Austria

Announcement for the FEBS-SysBio2009 course:

Third FEBS Advanced Lecture Course (‘the Gosau course’) on
Systems Biology: From Molecular Biology to Biological Function
March 7- 13, 2009 , Alpbach, Austria , EU

There will be 122 places for postdocs + Ph D students and 30 for Principal Investigators and 20 for participants from industry.

A number of FEBS fellowships will be available on competitive basis for members of constituent national societies (i.e. make sure you are a member of one of these) and the associated societies in Africa.  In addition, there will be fellowships for postdocs and Ph D students working on BMBF supported Systems Biology projects.  And, on the basis of support from companies, we will be able to grant fellowships to some of the other participants, including those from outside Europe.

For more information and the online registration please visit the course website at http://www.febs-sysbio2009.org/. Also Poster and Flyer suitable for printing and distribution can also be downloaded.

Dear Participants,

Thank you for participating at FEBS-SysBio2007. We hope you all safely arrived back home again and enjoyed the lectures, tutorials and other scientific interactions.

UPDATE: The first set of presentations in PDF format are now available in the Course Material section (access restricted, use username/password combination from gosau). Movies will follow as soon as they are processed. Pictures from the course are now also available at the Image Gallery.

The latest programme update (11.03.2007) is available for download as PDF.


Systems Biology is one of the most prominent newly emerging interdisciplinary science areas. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, mathematics, engineering, cell biology and genetics, with mathematics and computation, it enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time testable and predictive models of complex cellular pathways and eventually of whole cells are generated. FEBS-SysBio2007 shall cover essential and state-of-the-art aspects of SysBio from principles and methods to applications and modeling of living systems.

We were able to commit many leading experts to participate as lecturers and we are thus confident that FEBS-SysBio2007 will be an outstanding lecture course with an exquisite scientific program. It will open the doors for regular student training in Systems Biology in Europe, provide a basis for a human network of young Systems Biology experts.

The Federation of the European Biochemical Societies, FEBS, is the main sponsor of this exciting event. Additional contributions from non-profit institutions, ESMTB and YSBN facilitated the organization of FEBS-SysBio2007.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Gosau, Austria
