Modelling standards and systems biology, you hear a lot of talk about both these topics. But what would it mean if modellers and software engineers actually started using them. In the latest special issue of ERCIM news dealing with “Big Data” Brett and Bas take a look at an idealized day in the life of a computational systems biologist.
A new book on Systems Medicine has recently been published and includes a contribution on Modeling and Simulation Tools: From Systems Biology to Systems Medicine co-authored by ex-VU colleagues Martijn Mone, Maciej Swat and Brett Olivier.
We explore how software and standards need to evolve when considering Systems Medicine as compared to Systems Biology and Systems Pharmacology, PubMed: PMID:26677194.
Dan Fraenkel and Jens Nielsen recently undertook an in-depth review and extended analysis of our Science paper (van Heerden et al., 2014), and we are excited to see that their story has been published!
