Coronavirus information for participants

The onsite course and conference programme at EMBL has been paused until the end of June 2020.


We aim to continue offering our advanced training for the scientific community however we safely can. While some events have been cancelled, many have been rescheduled for a later date and others will be delivered as virtual events.


Registration is open for onsite courses and conferences starting after 1 July and for the virtual events. All registration fees for any events which don’t take place due to the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.

Symposium Overview

The current speed at which high-throughput data are produced and the growing number of studies that use not only one but multiple omics technologies on the same samples offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges in the era of multiomics is the integration and interpretation of the diverse large-scale omics data in a way that provides biological insights. This requires the development of statistical, mathematical and computational tools and - equally important - experimental strategies to follow up on hypotheses generated by large-scale data. Together, these computational and experimental tools will enable us to address novel questions and identify biological mechanisms.

This conference will provide a platform for bringing together leading researchers from computational biology, various omics fields and technology development to present their latest work and discuss applications, future ideas and the challenges for integrating large-scale biological data across different biological technologies and disciplines. A specific focus will be on discussing data integration of high-throughput technologies with molecular biology approaches. This conference aims to inspire novel ideas for data integration across the different omics fields and hence may sparkle exciting new future collaborations.
