Systems genetics: a synthesis of genetics, genomics and phenomics

Systems genetics is born out of a synthesis of multiple fields: it integrates approaches of genetics, genomics, and "phenomics", that is our increased ability to get quantitative and detailed measurements on a broad spectrum of phenotypes.

Systems Genetics

Tumors are ideal objects of systems genetic analyses, because they contain many different genotypes, many different cellular phenotypes, ongoing clonal evolution, interactions with the organismal environment and between the cells within the tumour micro-environment. These interactions influence disease progression and outcome as well as the development of metastases and are of key importance for treatment decisions.

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?

Programme
