The Sixth q-bio Conference
Back to The Sixth q-bio Conference.
The q-bio Conference is an annual event intended to advance predictive modeling of cellular regulation. The emphasis is on modeling and quantitative experimentation for understanding and predicting the behaviors of particular regulatory systems, phenomena that manifest themselves in many biological systems, and/or general principles of cellular information processing.
The single-track program will include invited talks from leading experimental and theoretical researchers (confirmed speakers are listed below), as well as contributed talks, poster presentations, and tutorials selected from abstract submissions. The program includes two banquets, tutorials, multiple sessions covering a range of topics, and two evening poster sessions.
The q-bio Conference is not affiliated with arXiv.q-bio, but symbiotically coordinates with it.
- The detailed program of oral and poster presentations has been compiled.
- Ride Sharing Board for transportation between ABQ airport and St. John's College has been started.
The 2012 schedule is now available.

q-bio Summer School
The Sixth q-bio Summer School is an affiliated event that precedes the conference. It is intended for investigators new to modeling of cellular regulatory systems.
