BioNetVisA 2017 workshop
From biological network reconstruction to data visualization and analysis in molecular biology and medicine
12 September 2017
BioNetVisA workshop brings together different actors of network biology from database providers, networks creators, computational biologists, biotech companies involved in data analysis and modeling to experimental biologists, clinicians that use systems biology approaches. The participants are exposed to the different paradigms of network biology and the latest achievements in the field.
The goal of BioNetVisA workshop is to build a discussion around various approaches for biological knowledge formalisation, data integration and analysis; compatibility between different methods and biological networks resources available the field; applicability for concrete research and clinical projects depending on scientific question and type of high-throughput data.
The BioNetVisA workshop aims at identifying bottlenecks and proposing short- and long-term objectives for the community as discussing questions about accessibility of available tools for wide range of user in every-day standalone application in biological and clinical labs. In addition, the possibilities for collective efforts by academic researchers, clinicians, biotech companies and future development directions in the field will be discussed during the round table panel.
Graphical representation of biological knowledge
Molecular interaction and pathway databases
Comprehensive signalling networks
Networks annotation and curation
High-throughput data visualisation, analysis and interpretation in the context of networks
Basic research and clinical application of network biology
Development, curation and maintenance of biological network databases
Data models from interaction to pathway and network, available tools for the integration of new discoveries into existing signalling diagrams. Discussion of curation models from map manager-oriented to community-based update using web-tools and forums.
Cell signalling knowledge representation paradigms
From interaction to single pathways representation to comprehensive signalling networks: discussion of modes of biological processes representation; granularity, coverage, sources of information, annotation modes, cross-citations between different signalling networks resources, etc. Standard data formats, graphical representation standards.
Visualization of data through networks
Paradigms of visualization of different types of high-throughput data on a network map. Data integration with a map. Methods compatibility with different paradigms of signalling networks reconstruction in various databases and resources.
Analytical tools for network biology
Tools for network analysis and manipulation, network modeling, network-based statistics. Studying network activation and inhibition, feedbacks and compensations, synthetic interactions, clinical treatment response and resistance.
