The Cell Cycle Ontology (CCO) automatically captures and integrates detailed information on the cell cycle process by combining, interlinking and enriching knowledge from several sources. CCO is an application ontology enabled by semantic web technologies, and accessible through the web for browsing, visualizing, advanced querying, and automated reasoning on the knowledge. CCO allows a detailed analysis of molecular network components and may provide hypotheses to help steer a systems biology-based approach to biological network building.
The application of Semantic Web technologies in the life sciences is rapidly emerging. We are building BioGateway, an RDF store that integrates OBO Foundry ontologies with other resources such as SwissProt. We spearhead a comprehensive application of the Semantic Web technologies to global biomedical data, establishing the paradigm of Semantic Systems Biology.
SysMO is a European transnational funding and research initiative on "Systems Biology of Microorganisms", under the European ERASysBio initiative (see below), and financed by the partner countries Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom and Spain.
The ERASysBio initiative is a European consortium of funding bodies, ministries and project management agencies , assembled to ensure fundamental and strategic collaboration in the funding of systems approaches to biological research.
The Research Council of Norway is the main national funding body, with a 2008 overall budget of 5.7 billion NOK.
