Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of Molecular Biology
21st Annual MASAMB Workshop, Biocenter Vienna, 11/12 April 2011

Bioinformatics and statistical genetics, twin themes of the long-running series of annual MASAMB meetings, have gained huge impetus from large-scale genome sequencing projects and development of high-throughput biological assay systems, including gene-expression microarrays, next generation sequencing, proteomic and metabolomic technologies. These immense data resources, and the underlying complexities of molecular and cell biology, provide exciting research opportunities for numerate scientists.
With a strictly limited number of participants from mathematics, statistics, computer science, bioinformatics, biology and related fields, the MASAMB meetings provide an intimate setting for exchange of ideas in methodological and applied research. Research students and scientists newly entering the field of genomic research are particularly welcome. Details of previous meetings are available at the MASAMB archive. MASAMB will for the first time ever come to the continent and will take place at the Vienna Biocenter on 11-12 April 2011. Call for Abstracts (pdf flyer)
