Chemical Complexity & Biology - STRASBOURG

This meeting is about the complex systems observed in biology at the molecular level and to explore the theoretical and molecular aspects of this complexity. Together, we will study convergences between supramolecular chemistry and biochemistry, measure and big-data, modeling and mathematical analysis. Two aspects will be more explored : -  complex interaction networks - large complex biophysics measurements.

 The purpose of the meeting is to invite scientists from various fields in order to have a rich and fruitful discussion on these topics, and to show to the communities of biologists, chemists and analysts, the links which exist between all these approaches.

The symposium is open to all and registration is free, thanks to financial support from our sponsors.
