Inferring genetic architecture from perturbation maps
Design and Analysis of Single and Combinatorial Gene Perturbation Screens
Modern high-throughput screening approaches are key technologies at the forefront of genetic research. They make it possible to describe a biological response to thousands of experimental perturbations.
This workshop will focus on novel experimental and computational strategies to use perturbation screens for dissecting cellular regulatory networks and disease mechanisms. The participants are leading international scientists covering both theoretical and experimental approaches for phenotyping and a wide range of research areas, model organisms and experimental techniques.
Together we will define the main unanswered questions in the field and identify the next key challenges: Which (computational or experimental) developments will drive the field forward in the next years?
Each participant gives a talk of 15 min, followed by 5 min of questions. At the end of the talk, each participant answers the question: "What is the next big thing in my field?" At the end of each session two participants kick-start the general discussion by summarizing the main results of the talks.
The workshop starts on Thursday with lunch (12oo-13:30) and ends Saturday night, with general departure on Sunday morning. There will be an afternoon session on Sept 15 and two sessions on both Sept 16 and Sept 17.
