Integrative bioinformatics : Research focuses on modelling, analysis & visualisation of biological networks Other events...
Modern technologies used in the life sciences produce huge amounts of data about the building blocks of organisms, such as genes, transcripts, proteins, and metabolites, as well as on phenotype data. For an integrative, systems biology directed approach it is not sufficient to consider the biological entities alone but is necessary to study their interactions and link the experimental data to the underlying biological processes. The key to this integration is biological networks in their spatial and temporal environments and the development of methods for the modelling, analysis, simulation, and visualisation of these networks and related multimodal and multidimensional data. After an introduction to the integrative analysis of such complex data this talk focuses on two aspects: firstly MetaCrop is presented, a database that contains manually curated information about metabolic pathways in crop plants ranging from global overviews to fine details including location information, transport processes, and reaction kinetics. MetaCrop contains high quality information for about 40 major metabolic pathways in several monocotyledon and dicotyledon crop plants with emphasis on the metabolism of agronomically important organs. It provides the basis for data integration, data analysis, and simulation of metabolic processes which will also be discussed in this talk. Secondly SBGN (Systems Biology Graphical Notation) is presented, a new set of standards for graphically representing biological information, the biology equivalent of the circuit diagram in electronics. SBGN as a visual language should make it easier to exchange complex information, so that models are accurate, efficient, and readily understandable. Methods and tools which support editing, transforming, and validating SBGN maps will also be discussed.
