THE FIFTH ANNUAL WINTER Q-BIO MEETING
Quantitative Biology on the Hawaiian Islands
February 21-24, 2017
http://w-qbio.org/

The Winter q-bio meeting brings together scientists and engineers who are interested in all areas of q-bio. Technology is driving revolutionary changes in biology. Systems Biology has arisen as the deduction of interaction networks from -omics data generated in the wake of remarkable technological achievements. Likewise, DNA synthesis technologies are driving the development of Synthetic Biology, whereby engineered circuitry and even entire genomes can be reconstituted from chemical building blocks. These two emerging areas have catalyzed the growth of Quantitative Biology, whereby the central goal is the deduction of quantitative principles that can be used to construct predictive models for biological phenomena.

The venue for 2017 is the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa<https://kauai.grand.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html>, which is located in Poipu, on the island of Kauai. The resort is known for its breathtaking oceanfront views, lush gardens, and 50 oceanfront acres of classic Hawaiian architecture.

This year we will select contributed talks from the submitted abstracts to be presented with the invited talks during the plenary sessions.  Contributed talks will also be selected for parallel breakout sessions that commence in the late afternoon.
