Integrative Biomedical Informatics

Unfolding diversity: Modeling promiscuity and toxicity in the metabolic space and beyond.

The development of in silico whole-cell model organisms is helping to build the interface between high-throughput biological data and predictive biology. I will present the work of our group based on metabolic circuits to design and optimize biological devices for production, sensing and regulation [1], introducing proof-of-concept applications of such devices for smart therapeutics and synthetic biology. Our approach is formally described through graph balance analysis, providing a methodology that can be used to study diverse coupling mechanisms such as promiscuous interactions [2] or toxicity pathways [3]. The integration of pathway information with whole-cell models might ultimately unveil unexpected synergistic effects originated from system perturbations.

Jornada sobre patents en l'àmbit de la Biomedicina

En el marc de la Plataforma Tecnológica Española de Medicamentos Innovadores, copresidida per Ferran Sanz, director del Programa de Recerca en Informàtica Biomèdica de l'IMIM (Institut de Recerca Hospital del Mar), s'organitza el proper 24 de maig a l'Auditori del Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona (PRBB), una Jornada sobre patents en l'àmbit de la biomedicina. Aquesta jornada està dirigida pel professor Pascual Segura, agent de la propietat industrial de la Universitat de Barcelona i director del seu centre de patents. L'objectiu de la Jornada és explicar la importància dels drets de propietat industrial, què es pot patentar i sota quines condicions, entre molts altres temes. La inscripció que és gratuïta podeu realitzar-la clicant aquí.

Integration of biological annotations and networks using Cytoscape (hands on tutorial)

Cytoscape is a widely used open-source software for visualization and analysis of networks. There is a wide range of plugins available facilitating the analysis of biological networks (protein-protein interaction networks, biological pathways etc). This hands on tutorial will give a short introduction to Cytoscape and will focus on the integration of biological annotations with networks. Requirements: People should bring their laptops with Cytoscape verision 2.6.3 installed. Cytoscape can be downloaded here: The slides will be available after the talk. Material needed for the tutorial will be available shortly before the tutorial on
