Autumn School Chemical Biology

25-29 September 2017


The Autumn School Chemical Biology took place from 25 till 29 September 2017.

The Autumn School has its roots in the interdisciplinary approach of the Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology, established within the German Excellence Initiative at the cutting edge of biology, chemistry and computer science. The programme comprised consecutive lecture courses (e.g. Combinatorial and High Throughput Technologies, Computational Life Science) followed by an international conference on Chemical Biology. In the courses, experts in the respective fields introduced fundamental methods and techniques. Subsequently, the participants joined the symposium with internationally renowned speakers. Poster sessions and social events completed this event.

The overall aim of the Autumn School was to get together graduate students from all over the world working in the area of Chemical Biology and to foster the exchange of their scientific work, thereby establishing personal contacts and scientific networking.
