Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, CB10 1RQ, UK

General Information

We are pleased to announce the third meeting on Evolutionary Systems Biology. This conference will provide a forum for scientists interested in applying systems and mechanistic approaches to understand evolution. This conference will explore the evolution of biological systems at different levels: from genes and molecules to organism development and physiology. Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding evolution through mechanistic biology. We will explore recent advances in experimental and theoretical approaches to study how genetic and non-genetic changes fuel and constrain evolution. The conference will offer a valuable training ground and rich learning experience and provide networking opportunities for scientists across disciplines relevant to systems biology. It should be of particular interest to those working at the interface of evolution, quantitative genetics, and systems biology.
