ICT for Bridging Biology and Medicine (Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop 13342)

Authors: Jonas S. Almeida, Andreas Dress, Titus Kühne, and Laxmi Parida

Published in: Dagstuhl Manifestos, Volume 3, Issue 1 (2013)


Abstract
The systems paradigm of modern medicine presents both, an opportunity and a challenge, for current Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The opportunity is to understand the spatio-temporal organisation and dynamics of the human body as an integrated whole, incorporating the biochemical, physiological, and environmental interactions that sustain life. Yet, to accomplish this, one has to meet the challenge of integrating, visualising, interpreting, and utilising an unprecedented amount of in-silico, in-vitro and in-vivo data related to health care in a systematic, transparent, comprehensible, and reproducible fashion. This challenge is substantially compounded by the critical need to align technical solutions with the increasingly social dimension of modern ICT and the wide range of stakeholders in modern health-care systems. Unquestionably, advancing health-care related ICT has the potential of fundamentally revolutionising care-delivery systems, affecting all our lives both, personally and -- in view of the enormous costs of health--care systems in modern societies -- also financially. Accordingly, to ponder the options of ICT for delivering the promise of systems approaches to medical care, medical researchers and physicians, biologists and mathematicians, computer scientists and information--systems experts from three continents and from both, industry and academia, met in Dagstuhl for a Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop on ICT Strategies for Bridging Biology and Medicine from August 18 to 23, 2013, to thoroughly discuss this multidisciplinary topic and to derive and compile a comprehensive list of pertinent recommendations -- rather than just to deliver a set package of sanitised powerpoint presentations on medical ICT. The recommendations in this manifesto reflect points of convergence that emerged during the intense discussions and analyses taking place the workshop. They also reflect a particular attention given to the identification of challenges for improving the effectiveness of ICT approaches to Systems Biomedicine.

Abstract
The systems paradigm of modern medicine presents both, an opportunity and a challenge, for current Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The opportunity is to understand the spatio-temporal organisation and dynamics of the human body as an integrated whole, incorporating the biochemical, physiological, and environmental interactions that sustain life. Yet, to accomplish this, one has to meet the challenge of integrating, visualising, interpreting, and utilising an unprecedented amount of in-silico, in-vitro and in-vivo data related to healthcare in a systematic, transparent, comprehensible, and reproducible fashion. This challenge is substantially compounded by the critical need to align technical solutions with the increasingly social dimension of modern ICT and the wide range of stakeholders in modern healthcare systems. Unquestionably, advancing healthcare-related ICT has the potential of fundamentally revolutionising care-delivery systems, affecting all our lives both, personally and -- in view of the enormous costs of healthcare systems in modern societies -- also financially. Accordingly, to ponder the options of ICT for delivering the promise of systems approaches to medicine and medical care, medical researchers, physicians, biologists, mathematicians, computer scientists, and information--systems experts from three continents and from both, industry and academia, met in Dagstuhl Castle for a Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop on ICT Strategies for Bridging Biology and Medicine from August 18 to 23, 2013, to thoroughly discuss this multidisciplinary topic and to derive and compile a comprehensive list of pertinent recommendations -- rather than just to deliver a set package of sanitised powerpoint presentations on medical ICT.

Structure Discovery in Biology: Motifs, Networks & Phylogenies (Dagstuhl Seminar 12291)

Authors: Alberto Apostolico, Andreas Dress, and Laxmi Parida

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 2, Issue 7 (2013)


Abstract
From 15.07.12 to 20.07.12, the Dagstuhl Seminar 12291 "Structure Discovery in Biology: Motifs, Networks & Phylogenies" was held in Schloss Dagstuhl -- Leibniz Center for Informatics. The seminar was in part a follow-up to Dagstuhl Seminar 10231, held in June 2010, this time with a strong emphasis on large data. Both veterans and new participants took part in this edition. During the seminar, several participants presented their current research, and ongoing work and open problems were discussed. Abstracts of the presentations given during the seminar, as well as abstracts of seminar results and ideas, are put together in this report. The first section describes the seminar topics and goals in general. Links to extended abstracts or full papers are provided, if available.

The Ideal Storage Cellular Automaton Model

Authors: Andreas Dress, Wim Hordijk, Lin Wei, and Peter Serocka

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 10231, Structure Discovery in Biology: Motifs, Networks & Phylogenies (2010)


Abstract
We have implemented and investigated a spatial extension of the orig- inal ideal storage model by embedding it in a 2D cellular automaton with a diffusion-like coupling between neighboring cells. The resulting ideal storage cellular automaton model (ISCAM) generates many interesting spatio-temporal patterns, in particular spiral waves that grow and com- pete" with each other. We study this dynamical behavior both mathemat- ically and computationally, and compare it with similar patterns observed in actual chemical processes. Remarkably, it turned out that one can use such CA for modeling all sorts of complex processes, from phase transition in binary mixtures to using them as a metaphor for cancer onset caused by only one short pulse of 'tissue dis-organzation' (changing e.g. for only one single time step the diffusion coefficient) as hypothesized in recent papers questioning the current gene/genome centric view on cancer onset by AO Ping et al.
