The Institute for Systems Biology held its 6th Annual International Symposium, Systems Biology and the Environment, in April 2007 at its research facility in Seattle, Washington.
The two day event featured leading researchers in the areas of energy sources, interactions between the environment and microbial communities, plant systems biology, biological responses to extreme environments, biodiversity, toxicology, and infectious disease.
Conference sessions are viewable free on line here.
Don Rule says the presentations by Sallie Chisholm and Antoine Danchin were pretty interesting. Ben Kerr was the most entertaining.
