Awarding the winners of the SYSBIO 2016 price

Winners of the 2016 SYSBIO price has been awarded during the last SYSBIODAY, on 12th December 2017, in Milan.

The SYSBIO price awards SYSBIO members that, during a calendar year, publish an new, original research paper with a complete systems biology approach (molecular and computational analysis) on international journals having a 5-year Impact Factor (5y-IF) higher than 10. Since papers could be accepted until the end of the year, the price is awarded the next year.

The winner papers of 2016 are (winners in bold):

  1. 1st price: Palumbo, P. et al. Whi5 phosphorylation embedded in the G1/S network dynamically controls critical cell size and cell fate. Nat. Commun. 7:11372 (Pasquale Palumbo, Marco Vanoni)
  2. 2nd price (ex equo):
    1. Shekhar-Guturja, T. at al. Dual action antifungal small molecule modulates multidrug efflux and TOR signaling. Nat. Chem. Biol. , 12, 10:867-75 (Paola Coccetti, Farida Tripodi)
    2. Caravagna, G. et al. Algorithmic methods to infer the evolutionary trajectories in cancer progression. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A., 113, 28:E4025-34 (Giancarlo Mauri)
Showing impact on society

Diffusion and Impact

Contemporary science must be responsible to citizens, to the national and international communities that finances it. SYSBIO disseminates the results obtained and shares the concepts developed through specialized and non-specialist events. Seminars often involve people who are far from systems biology, but important to understand topics such as, for instance, complexity and epistemology.
