MaCSBio Science Day 2018
The theme of this year’s meeting is 'the Bigger Picture'. We will focus on the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in systems biology for education, research and knowledge transfer.
You are welcome to attend and participate in the scientific discussions in an informal setting. MaCSBio will present current and future research during this extraordinary day. Moreover, lectures will be given by invited prominent scientists on the latest developments in their respective areas of systems biology research.

Bring Your Own Data (BYOD)
Are you tired of analyzing your transcriptomics datasets the same way every time? Are you stuck with a combined MRI-genetics dataset? Do you have multi-omics datasets that just won’t play nice together? At the Bring Your Own Data (BYOD) session, MaCSBio staff as well as MaCSBio Science Day attendees will assist and advise you in the analysis of your biological dataset.
