WorkPackage 1 - Systems Biology Tools

Leader: Michal Or-Guil, Ph.D.

Systems biology is a very promising tool for studying biological problems, dealing with it in the most general way possible. It is thus connected to gathering of immense amounts of data that have strong dimensionality problem, representing a challenge both to biologists as well as to statisticians.

The aim of the work carried out in this work package is to prepare systems for identification of marker genes and for studying mechanisms of drug action in a an easy-to-use tools organised in flow charts or decision trees that would enable studies of different cases. Particular attention will be focused to the artillery of cytokines that are related to tumor immunosupression.
