Open PHACTS and Big Data Europe: Second community workshop

Last week we held the second Big Data Europe community workshop for societal challenge 1 (Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing) in Brussels, Belgium. After demonstrating the progress that has been made translating the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform to Big Data Europe’s architecture, we engaged in a lively roundtable discussion about how the Platform might be extended to tackle Read more about Open PHACTS and Big Data Europe: Second community workshop[…]

Publication: Open PHACTS computational protocols for in silico target validation of cellular phenotypic screens: knowing the knowns

Phenotypic screening is in a renaissance phase and is expected by many academic and industry leaders to accelerate the discovery of new drugs for new biology. Given that phenotypic screening is per definition target agnostic, the emphasis of in silico and in vitro follow-up work is on the exploration of possible molecular mechanisms and efficacy Read more about Publication: Open PHACTS computational protocols for in silico target validation of cellular phenotypic screens: knowing the knowns[…]

Webinar: Open source software components for chemistry standardisation

Webinar: Maximising impact for pharmaceutical applications

David Wild (Data2Discovery) demonstrates how Data2Discovery is creating systems that map proprietary and other data sources into semantic linked form that can be combined with Open PHACTS data in a smart data lake. Combining these data sources will allow researchers across pharmaceutical companies to quickly and easily leverage the power of integrated public and proprietary datasets to Read more about Webinar: Maximising impact for pharmaceutical applications[…]

Publication: Using the Semantic Web for Rapid Integration of WikiPathways with Other Biological Online Data Resources

The diversity of online resources storing biological data in different formats provides a challenge for bioinformaticians to integrate and analyse their biological data. The semantic web provides a standard to facilitate knowledge integration using statements built as triples describing a relation between two objects. WikiPathways, an online collaborative pathway resource, is now available in the Read more about Publication: Using the Semantic Web for Rapid Integration of WikiPathways with Other Biological Online Data Resources[…]
