ESF's scientific programme "Integrated Approaches for Functional Genomics" brings together a wide range of functional genomics experts and covers experimental and in silico domains. There are many benefits from an integrated approach between the experimental technologies and informatics tools, which are complementary in nature.
Also, the combination of genome sequencing projects and functional analysis is producing data focusing on the biological relationships between sequences; hence the need for models, methods and tools to manipulate sequence networks or clusters is increasing.
The programme is offering a number of Exchange Grants to scientists wishing to learn a new technology or to benefit from being in another laboratory to carry out experiments. Full details online.
