BiotICC WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Information processing is a fundamental property of living systems, transecting biology across multiple scales and levels of organization, from molecules to populations, and from milliseconds to evolutionary timespans. Over the years, the formal background, methods and insights developed in information,communications and coding theory (ICCT) have been successfully applied to model and understand biological phenomena at different scales. Given its transversal and fundamental nature, ICCT has the potential to become a unifying framework in biology, enabling a formal multi-scale approach to the study and understanding of biological systems. 


This two-day workshop will bring together a heterogenous group of researchers and stakeholders to discuss the challenges that an information, communication and coding theory approach to biology must overcome to develop into a unifying framework for biological research and development.
