Subject: 08.09.21 Euro-QSAR 2008 Omics Technologies & Systems Biology, Uppsala, Sweden
The 17th European Symposium on Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships & Omics Technologies and Systems Biology will be held on the 21-26 September 2008 at the Uppsala Concert & Congress Hall, Uppsala, Sweden. Official website http://www.qsar2008.org/ The following topics will be covered during the symposium: Case Studies in Drug Discovery Chemometrics Combinatorial Chemistry and Virtual Screening Emerging Technologies Experimental design in QSAR Molecular Modelling and Chemical Properties QSAR QSAR in Chemical Risk Assessment QSAR in Natural Product Medicine QSAR in Omics QSAR in System Biology QSAR in Toxicology and Environmental Research Confirmed invited speakers: Martin van den Berg, University of Utrecht, Netherlands Gabriele Cruciani, University of Perugia, Italy Yvonne Martin, Abbot Laboratories, USA Jeremy Nicholson, Imperial College, United Kingdom Ann Richard, FDA, USA Rebecca Wade, Heidenberg, Germany Jia Wei, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China Svante Wold, Umea University & Umetrics David Winkler, CSIRO Molecular and Health Technologies, Australia All participants are kindly invited to submit their contributions. Authors should indicate their preference for oral or poster presentation. All papers will be reviewed by the scientific committee, who will decide upon acceptance and form of presentation. The abstract deadline is 15th May 2008. Scientific description QSAR: Quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) represent an attempt to quantitatively correlate structural or property descriptors of compounds with activity. Physicochemical descriptors such as hydrophobicity, topology, electronic properties, steric effects, etc are determined empirically or by computational methods. Activities used in QSAR include biological activity and chemical reactivity; these are applied in disciplines such as drug design and environmental risk assessment. QSAR can then be used for prediction of response of new chemical structures. Omics technologies: Sequencing of the human genome has revolutionized biology and led to a variety of omics technologies and bioinformatics tools enabling us to study the expression of genes, proteins, metabolites, and more. The word omics refers to the comprehensive analysis of a defined biological system, where for example proteomics aim at analysing all proteins of a well-defined system. Other types of omics are for example metabolomics, genomics, lipidomics and transcriptomics. Omics technologies both have an impact on our understanding of biological processes, and are valuable tools in biomarker discovery. Systems Biology: Systems biology means holistic modelling of a biological system to describe all the processes in a cell or organism and how they interact. This is a highly interdisciplinary process which is both experimental and computational, and include knowledge from the fields biology, computer simulations, statistics (bioinformatics), automatic control engineering, physics, mathematics, chemistry, and medicine.
