Genedata expands collaboration with HepatoSys Systems Biology Network

Genedata expands multi-year collaboration with HepatoSys Systems Biology Network to next level

On February 9th, 2007, Swiss-based computational biology provider Genedata AG announced a three-year expansion of their collaboration with the HepatoSys research network. HepatoSys, an interdisciplinary initiative funded in 2003 by leading German research centers, aims to understand the physiology and pathophysiology of the human liver cell using a systems biology approach.

In the first funding period of HepatoSys, Genedata had been tasked to develop and establish a computational platform serving as the consortium's central data storage and analysis infrastructure. The platform - built on Genedata's established products Phylosopher® and Expressionist® - was successfully deployed and is now being used by the consortium. The centralized data storage infrastructure enables an integrative approach to the interpretation of systems biology modeling results in the context of experimental findings, including high-throughput transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics data.

Taking the collaboration to the next level, Genedata will now work on data analysis projects to interpret the huge amounts of molecular profiling data generated within the HepatoSys consortium."After having built successfully on Genedata's track record in developing our scientific computing infrastructure, we see a tremendous opportunity in bringing together our academic expertise with Genedata's know-how to transfer systems biology applications to the pharmaceutical industry," said Prof. Jens Timmer, scientific spokesman for HepatoSys.

"The ambitous goal to simulate complex biochemical networks and their regulation in liver cells is highly relevant for innovative biomedical applications," explained Prof. Irmgard Merfort, Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Freiburg. "Cellular processes such as programmed cell death and regeneration of liver cells are of great scientific and medical interest. Genedata will help us to identify new biomarkers for disease diagnostics and to pave the way for novel therapeutic approaches in tissue regeneration, cancer and inflammation."

Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata, adds: "Genedata's contributions to concrete scientific projects show that we are considered to be a valuable partner, not only on the technical, but also on the scientific side. HepatoSys is yet another long-term relationship that proves Genedata's commitment to innovative systems biology applications".

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
