CSAIL Co-Hosts Regulatory Genomics Conference

From October 29th to November 2nd, MIT played host to a series of meetings in the area of regulatory genomics. The conference was a combination of the 5th annual RECOMB Satellite on Regulatory Genomics, the 4th annual RECOMB Satellite on Systems Biology, and the 3rd annual DREAM reverse engineering challenge. Co-organized by CSAIL and the Broad Institute, this year’s conference surpassed all previous years in both complexity and success. The conference boasted more than five hundred attendees from twenty-four countries and over two hundred and fifty abstracts. Ninety-three talks were given over a period of five days, and twenty-four of the papers submitted were published in three partner scientific journals.
