SEATTLE, April 13, 2009 – Researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) have demonstrated a new computational method for getting the most biological information out of huge and growing sets of genetic interaction data. A paper addressing the development has been published in the April edition of PLoS Computational Biology at http://www.ploscompbiol.org/doi/pcbi.1000347.
SEATTLE, March 24, 2009 – Researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) in Seattle and the McLaughlin Research Institute in Great Falls, Montana, published today in Molecular Systems Biology a ground-breaking study which modeled the progression of degenerative brain diseases, one of which is "mad cow disease," that are caused by misfolded proteins called "prions". The paper can be accessed at http://www.nature.com/msb/index.html.
SEATTLE, February 18, 2009 – Researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle and the University of British Columbia have develop a new fully automated microfluidic experiment platform for conducting live-cell experimentation that enables high throughput imaging and on-chip microenvironment manipulation.
A paper describing the platform was published recently in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
"I think the thing that is most unique about P4 Medicine is that it will represent a network of networks - genetic networks, molecular networks, cellular networks, tissue networks, individual networks, population networks, social networks."
