The purpose of this two-day workshop is to bring biologists and statisticians/mathematicians together on various aspects of systems biology studies of biological processes and diseases, including both novel biological experiments for systems biology studies of diseases and novel mathematical and statistical methods for integrative analysis of new generation of sequence data, SNP data, gene expression, proteomic, metabolomic and phenotypic data. We propose to have 12 invited talks, about six are on new experimental approaches and new data generation methods for systems biology (mainly given by biologists) and another six talks are on new statistical/computational methods for integrative analysis of these data (mainly given by statisticians or mathematicians). Potential topics to be covered include integrative analysis of sequences and gene expression data for studying complex diseases, methods for analysis of genetic networks and pathways, data generation and analysis methods for epigenetics, methods for analysis of new generations of sequence data and their applications in studying diseases and biological processes.
