High Throughput Biology Symposium

Welcome to the third High Throughput Biology Symposium

This two day meeting gathers a distinguished group of European and international research pioneers, covering prominent high throughput research areas in Systems Biology and Functional Genomics. Topics for the scientific sessions are:

  • Single cell genomics and gene expression
  • Genetic interactions
  • RNAi and somatic cell genetics
  • Protein-DNA interactions
  • Cancer

The meeting also highlights existing opportunities for academic and industrial researchers to access automated cell-based and biochemical technologies based at the Karolinska High Throughput Center; home to one of the most sophisticated, state-of-the-art, ultra-high performance liquid handling and analysis platforms in Europe.

Goals for the symposium are to increase awareness of how high throughput methods can accelerate research in the rapidly developing field of public health related biology, to generate novel ideas and to promote innovative initiatives and collaborations.
