BaSysBio (Bacillus Systems Biology) will study the global regulation of gene transcription in the model bacterium Bacillus subtilis. This bacterium has significant economic potential as a producer of enzymes and metabolites, and is used in a wide range of industries, from pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturers to the agro and food sectors. Two disease-causing bacteria, Bacillus anthracis, responsible for Anthrax, and Staphylococcus aureus, responsible for secondary infections, are objects of research as well.
BaSysBio will provide new insight into the fundamental principles that control cellular processes. Subsequently, the initiative will contribute to the identification of new biomarkers, and innovative therapeutic targets for anti-bacterial drugs.
Genedata Phylosopher has been chosen as the central management and infrastructure solution for sharing and interpreting the experimental data generated within BaSysBio. The project will adapt an array of high-throughput genomics technologies, including transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, fluxomics and cell reporter assays. As quantitative molecular profiling information is key for the development of predictive mathematical models, the Genedata Phylosopher tools will be used for integrating the BaSysBio data and interpreting it in its pathway context. “Thanks to Genedata we are able to pool the various partners’ genomics and systems biology expertise across the entire network,” BaSysBio project coordinator Dr. Philippe Noirot said.
For Genedata, anticipating the evolving needs of systems biology research is an important commitment and responsibility . The company currently supports several systems biology research consortia in Europe. Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata AG, stated: “The project brings together the best teams in Europe, specialized in different fields from molecular biology to computational biology. We are proud to collaborate with this world class research consortium.”

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
