Metabolic signaling as new concept for breast cancer risk estimation

HITS is partner of the international research consortium “MESI-STRAT” that explores the interplay of breast cancer metabolism and oncogenic signaling by systems medicine. The consortium was awarded by the European Union €6 million for five years. The main goal of the five-years project is to develop new models for knowledge-based stratification of patients into subgroups to guide targeted interventions. The Scientific Databases and Visualization (SDBV) group at HITS takes care of the model and data management platform.

ICSB: Standards for Systems Biology

In September, Martin Golebiewski (SDBV) organized workshops on computer models and standards at the 15th International Conference on Systems Biology (Melbourne, Australia). 40 participants discussed the implementation and distribution of standards for data and models in system biology in the „NormSys/ISBE“ workshop. The „COMBINE & „ERASysAPP“ tutorial showed young scientists how to set up quantitative…

Towards Better Standards for Systems Biology

In the second COMBINE workshop (03.-07.09.2011 in Heidelberg), scientists aim at refining important description standards for systems biology Systems biology brings together experimental and theoretical methods in order to conduct research on entire organ systems. In doing so, the researchers gain data from different sources and in different formats. In order to combine these heterogeneous…
