The Systems Microscopy Network of Excellence (NoE) is a life science project spearheading a key enabling methodology based on live cell imaging for the development of next-generation systems biology. The project is funded under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Union.
The multidisciplinary consortium joins 15 research groups spread over the whole of Europe and is coordinated from Karolinska Institutet. The project was launched 1 January 2011 and will run until the end of 2015. During the course of the project, the network will further tools and strategies to make available to the wider research community, a new approach to the systems biology of the living cell.

This one-week intensive course teaches current approaches in statistical and computational analysis of large-scale experiments in biology. The course focus on the methods for downstream analysis of high-throughput sequencing experiments, including DNA sequencing (variant calling), RNA sequencing (differential expression), QTL analysis, epigenetics. Lectures also cover basics including statistical testing, machine learning and bioinformatic metadata integration.
The "2nd Systems Microscopy Annual NoE Meeting" will take place between 23-24th of April, 2013 in Leuven, Belgium.

Daniel Gerlich, a member of the Systems Microscopy NoE and scientist at the IMBA – Institute of Molecular Biotechnology, has developed a new, fully-automated method that allows microscopic images to be analyzed and evaluated without human support. This new technology was introduced in the scientific journal "Nature Methods".
