Summary:
Quantitative approaches to , systems biology, and ecology unravel several universal regularities connecting genome-scale observables, phenotypes and physiological traits. A current challenge for theoreticians is understanding how different universal features emerging empirically can be accounted for by simple models exploring quantitative laws at different levels, from physiology to evolutionary genomics. The scope of this workshop is to give an overview of the current state of this emerging field. The workshop will primarily target PhD students and postdocs with a physics or background, but the school is open to anyone with background in (evolutionary) genomics, (evolutionary) biology, , ecology, interested in quantitative work.
