MoDaSyS Workshop – November 8, 2018

The National Institute of Research and Development for Biological Sciences organizes and hosts the workshop “AlgoNano: Algorithmic and Computational Methods in Bio-Medicine and Nanotechnology” on November the 8, 2018, between 09.00-17.15.

Through this workshop we want to bring together researchers from several complementary fields (eg Molecular Biology, Materials Science, Systems Biology, Informatics, Mathematics, etc.) which have as a common interest the development of new methods of designing and controlling matter (biological, organic, or inorganic) at Micro and Nano levels. We also hope that this event will strengthen the collaborative relationships between the research groups present within this Workshop.
