Systems biology integrates highthroughput data acquisition to computational analysis. This has markedly increased our capacity to interrogate and understand biology as a complete system and not as isolated reactions and interactions. As a result, systems biology has brought about an unprecedented rate of knowledge acquisition in the life sciences. Networking has been a crucial component of systems biology at both the molecular and human interaction levels. The integration of networks has enabled complete overviews of biological systems to be built. The networking and collaborations between multidisciplinary groups of scientists have also been an important enabler for the practice of systems biology.

The Asian Regional Conference on Systems Biology 2010 (ARCSB 2010) will be the first regional gathering on systems biology research in this region. This meeting is organized by Institute of Systems Biology (INBIOSIS), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. The aim of ARCSB 2010 is to establish a firm foothold for systems biology in the region via networking and the sharing of ideas which is additionally catalysed by the participation of internationally renowned researchers in this field. This biannual event will gather local and international researchers who are involved in systems biology and allow them to discuss the latest developments in their research.
Delegates are invited to submit abstracts for oral and/or poster presentations. Abstracts should be classified into sections as listed under the Scientific Programme section. Please submit all abstracts as Word documents via email to Further information pertaining to the oral and poster presentations are available from the conference website. All abstracts will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee.

The ARCSB 2010 scientific programme is divided into keynote, plenary, oral and poster sessions. Keynote and plenary talks will be given by distinguished international speakers who play a key role in the development and application of systems biology.

The conference will mainly cover the following topics:
Functional genomics and biological networks
Computational methods and tools
Proteomics and systems biology
Metabolomics and systems biology

Other topics may include but are not limited to:
Genomes and protein analysis
Algorithms and phylogeny
Structural Bioinformatics
Text mining
Pathways and interactions
Systems biology
