User metadata is an essential part of experimental data. Scientists need to understand underlying conditions and experimental procedures in order to model or investigate relevant biological questions. Currently, only a small fraction of the High Content SCreening (HCS) investigations are deposited for reuse by the community, and an even smaller fraction of that data is standards-compliant. For reusing data, scientists need to be able to understand how data was generated, under which experimental ...

Virtual Tissues (VTs) are multi-scale, multi-cellular, mechanistic Agent Based Models (ABMs) that predict the spatio-temporal dynamics of biological tissues. While multiple platforms exist for constructing and executing VT models (listed below in the section on VT Modeling Frameworks), models developed for different platforms are currently incompatible and not accessible or executable in a common location, impeding model discovery, validation and reuse. FAIRSPACE will initially provide support ...

This investigation serves as supplementary material for a SWAT4HCLS publication that describes minimum metadata and provenance requirements for reproducible enrichment analysis results.

Functional enrichment analysis is an essential downstream process in high throughput omics studies, such as transcriptomics and proteomics. By using the Gene Ontology (GO) and its annotations (GOA), underlying functional patterns of over-representation can be identified, leading to ...

Aims: The immune response is important for mediating the benefit of cardiac cell therapies. The role of varied immune responses in influencing the outcome of cardiomyocyte cell transplantation after myocardial infarction was investigated. Methods and Results: Cardiac flow cytometric analysis of C57BL/6J and T- and B cell deficient Rag2del mice revealed varied CD11b, natural killer and dendritic cell responses following sham injection and a disparate macrophage response after myocardial infarction. ...

We performed topological analysis on pathways from a harmonised dataset containing pathways from the COVID-19 Disease Map, WikiPathways, and Reactome. The analysis was done using Vanted, SBGN-ED, and LMME which support the import and export of several standard formats (such as SBML, and SBGN-ML).

Members of the genus Aromatoleum are cosmopolitan in diverse habitats and utilize a broad range of recalcitrant organic molecules coupled to denitrification or O2-respiration. To gain a holistic understanding of the model organism A. aromaticum EbN1T, we here studied its catabolic network dynamics in response to 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)propanoate, phenylalanine, 3-hydroxybenzoate, benzoate and acetate utilized under nitrate-reducing vs. oxic conditions. Multi-OMICS (transcriptome, proteome and metabolome) ...

Data integration is an essential part of Systems Biology. Scientists need to combine different sources of information in order to model biological systems, and relate those models to available experimental data for validation. Currently, only a small fraction of the data and models produced during Systems Biology investigations are deposited for reuse by the community, and only a smaller fraction of that data is standards compliant, semantic content. By embedding semantic technologies into familiar ...

Because enzyme activity depends very much on the reaction conditions, it is crucial to report all these metadata (see for example the STRENDA Guidelines:

Another challenge in experiments to determine enzyme reaction parameters is the choice of suitable substrate concentrations to enable optimal kinetic fits and the informed choice of a kinetic model.

A Jupyter notebook is given to assist in the choice of substrate concentrations ...

The dataset presents mathematical models of the gene regulatory network of the circadian clock, in the plant Arabidopsis thaliana. The work is published in Urquiza-Garcia and Millar, Testing the inferred transcription rates of a dynamic, gene network model in absolute units, In Silico Plants, 2021.

Starting from the P2011 model, this project corrects theoretical issues (EC steady state binding assumption) to form an intermediate model (first version U2017.1; published as U2019.1) model, rescales ...

Multiscale and multicellular simulation of SARS-CoV-2 infection uncover points of intervention to evade apoptosis.


Our framework enables the simulation of the dynamics of signaling pathways that include the relevant players in SARS-CoV-2 infection, at the level of the individual cell and of the cell population. These different players encompass the virus, epithelial and immune cells. The model focuses on apoptosis and suggests two knock out alterations that force apoptosis of the ...

Research in Systems Biology involves integrating data and knowledge about the dynamic processes in biological systems in order to understand and model them. 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 cellular pathways and ...

An experimental workflow to provide detailed information of the molecular mechanisms of enzymes is described. This workflow will help in the application of enzymes in technical processes by providing crucial parameters needed to plan, model and implement biocatalytic processes more efficiently. These parameters are homogeneity of the enzyme sample (HES), kinetic and thermodynamic parameters of enzyme kinetics and binding of reactants to enzymes. The techniques used to measure these properties are ...

The COVIDminer text mining project ( reads the published literature concerning SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 to extract statements about (primarily molecular) interactions. Using the API associated with this project, putative interactors can be automatically retrieved for the existing COVID-19 Disease Maps. New interactions are prioritised based on their frequency in the literature and the topological importance of the interaction targets to provide a focussed set ...

We further used the transcriptome dataset from the GEO database with accession number GSE147507 (Blanco-Melo et al., 2020) to extract the series number 5 from the dataset, consisting of 2 conditions in triplicate, A549 cells treated with a mock and A549 infected with SARS-CoV-2, measured 24 hours after treatment. Phosphoproteomic data of mock-treated and SARS-CoV2 infected cells were extracted from (Stukalov et al., 2020). We then applied our pipeline described in M&M X. This work notably ...

In this investigation, we aim to develop automatic workflows to pinpoint drug targets carrying genomic variants at high frequency in the population

In this investigation we aim to develop automatic workflows to analyze COVID19 Omics data to understand and predict the molecular pathways depicting host-virus interaction.

We develop macrophage logical models to represent the activation/polarization of this immune cell. Interactions are manually curated with available macrophage literature. The models are mainly built and analyzed in GINsim. But other resources are used to integrate specific pathways or small modules (CasQ software) and to analyze the logical models (CoLoMoTo Notebooks).

The hallmarks of cancer provide a highly cited and well-used conceptual framework for describing the processes involved in cancer cell development. However, methods for translating these high-level concepts into data-level associations between hallmarks and genes (for high throughput analysis), vary widely between studies. In this investigation we compare cancer hallmark mapping strategies from different studies, based on Gene Ontology and biological pathway annotation. By analysing the semantic ...

NFDI4Health task area 2 targets core deficits in medical sciences, i.e. the lack of harmonised standards for data and data quality management in clinical trials, public health surveys, and epidemiological cohorts, as well as the lack of information on and access to relevant standards. By making standards available, TA2 will improve the findability, accessibility and interoperability of existing and novel data bodies. For this purpose, guidelines, standards and policies on data management and ...
