Computational Metabolomics and Metabolic Diseases

July 25-31, 2019

Application deadline: July 1st 2019


Aim and scope:

Metabolites are key players in almost all biological processes. Furthermore, the incidence of metabolic diseases is rapidly increasing.

Recently, metabolomics has shown rapid growth in its application to human health. Next generation analysis techniques promise even

richer and more complete analysis capabilities enabling earlier clinical diagnosis, drug refinement, and personalized medicine. Our

main and special guest lectures will address such a scope focusing on algorithms, models, biomedical and biotechnological techniques

together with clinical applications. From the enclosed bibliography, the selected themes have received much attention in the scholarly

literature ranging from Nature and Science to Bioinformatics Journals.
