European PROSPECTS for proteomics and systems biology

Issue 6 2008, Past issues / 3 December 2008 /

In its Research Framework Programme 7 (2007-2013), the European Commission sets the focus in health research on bringing the huge high-throughput data collection efforts of earlier programmes to the systems level. The ultimate goal of systems biology is the integration of various types of experimental data into models that represent and simulate physiological cell function. To this end, information on gene and protein expression and its dynamics, protein localisation, modification states and activation, their interaction in larger supra-molecular complexes and functional roles need to be compiled from numerous sources and formats and brought into context using advanced computational tools.

A showcase project for EU research

Issue 4 2006, Past issues / 20 July 2006 / Dr Anne Katrin Werenskiold, Project Manager, Interaction Proteome

The investigation of functional protein-protein interactions has been gaining momentum with recent technological innovations. The high-throughput era in genomics and proteomics research is essentially dependent on technological advancements to drastically increase capacities in both large-scale gathering of data; their interpretation and functional validation, as well as the compilation and storage of data in a standardised format. Contributions of the European Commission-funded ‘Interaction Proteome’, an integrated project in the field, are outlined in this article.
