Spatio-temporal encoding and decoding in cell signaling

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this symposium is cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date. Signaling is at the core of coordination between cells in multicellular organisms. Many experimental and computational studies are dedicated to deciphering the mechanisms underlying the specificity, efficiency and biological outputs of cell signaling networks. The primary role of …
