The prominent role of the genome in the regulation of basic biological phenomena has been the subject of extensive experimental and theoretical studies since the mid-20th century. Jacob and Monod's operon model for gene regulation in bacteria and the Britten-Davidson theory of genomic regulation in higher organisms are two well-known examples.

While mathematical modeling has a long history in biology, in particular connected to evolutionary theory and population genetics, models related to complex characteristics such as development originated more recently.

This workshop provides an in-depth examination of the association of the concepts of genome and regulation, while at the same time giving an historical and philosophical analysis which includes major methodology, in particular experimentation and computational modeling.
