Andreas Dräger is the assistant professor for Computational Systems Biology of Infection and Antimicrobial-Resistant Pathogens at the University of Tübingen in Germany. His group aims to combat the spreading antibiotics resistances by using mathematical modeling and computer simulation of bacterial systems up to entire microbiomes and host-pathogen interactions. In doing so, his group actively contributes to the advancement of various COMBINE standards.

Trained as a Computer Scientist at the University of Jena, Germany, my interests drifted more and more towards "computing life" during my PhD at Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia, Canada. On one hand, that term captures that I got fascinated by the idea to understand life as a form of computation and to describe, reprogram, and reassemble parts of cells as described in many brilliant experiments from a spectrum of disciplines ranging from DNA computing to Synthetic
Here we share resources and best practices to develop a disease map for COVID-19. The project is progressing as a broad community-driven effort. We aim to establish a knowledge repository on virus-host interaction mechanisms specific to the SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 Disease Map is an assembly of molecular interaction diagrams established based on literature evidence.
The GMDS project group bundles activities for health-related FAIR data infrastructures in the fields of biomedical research, clinical data management and medical informatics in Germany. It aims at providing a platform for information exchange about best practice for and implementation of FAIR data management in these fields and constructing a network of FAIR data managements providers in these fields. Through bridging between providers and potential users of such data management platforms within

There is an urgent need for novel antibiotics to fight life-threatening infections and to counteract the increasing problem of propagating antibiotic resistance. Recently, new molecular genetic and biochemical tools have provided insight into the enormous unexploited genetic pool of environmental microbial biodiversity for new antibiotic compounds. New tools for more efficiently lifting this hidden treasure are needed to strengthen competitiveness of European industry, as well as for a cost-saving
Systems Biology studies the properties and phenotypes that emerge from the interaction of biomolecules where such properties are not obvious from those of the individual molecules. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, mathematics, cell biology, genetics, mathematics, engineering and computer sciences, Systems Biology enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time, testable and predictive models of complex
