16. Systems Biology Approaches to Infectious Diseases
Thursday, October 20, 2011: 2:45 PM-4:45 PM
Room: 104ABC

Learning Objectives:

Systems biology is at the cutting edge of understanding the etiology, pathogenesis, and evolution of disease. These techniques range from the wet lab (in vitro or in vivo) to the purely computational (in silico) but fundamentally rely on the coordinated understanding of the interactions of real genes in real time in real hosts and pathogens. At the conclusion of the session participants will be able to:

  • recognize the role of tuberculosis in the subversion and control of host response
  • identify methods of large data set analysis and presentation
  • recognize broad patterns of transcriptional profiles, their applications and implications

Target Audience: Scientists, Researchers, Pharmacists, Microbiologists, Investigators, Infectious Diseases Physicians, HIV Clinicians, Fellows-in-Training, Epidemiologists, Clinicians, Academicians

Tracks: Investigative ID, HIV, Pediatric ID, Adult ID

Moderator:  Steven Holland, MD, National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
