Project description

In the past few years, the promises of biotechnology - understanding the human body and its intercellular processes, detailed knowledge of health and disease, better diagnostics and treatments - have been driven ever closer to fruition. These insights are accompanied by an unprecedented torrent of biological data streaming out of the research labs. Knowledge-based systems enable their users to manage massive amounts of heterogeneous data in order to obtain deep insight into highly complex interrelationships. Introducing this great potential to laboratory physicians, molecular biologists or pharmacologists is the overall goal of the so-called BIOMIS-Project, which has been started in September 2003 as an FHplus infrastructure setup activity to realize novel, highly specialized solutions for biomedical applications.
