Centre for Digital Life Norway (DLN) project 'OXYMOD - Optimized oxidative enzyme systems for efficient conversion of lignocellulose to valuable products'

Exploiting native endowments by re-factoring, re-programming and implementing novel control loops in Pseudomonas putida for bespoke biocatalysis. The EmPowerPutida project aims to engineer the lifestyle of Pseudomonas putida to generate a tailored, re-factored chassis for the production of so far non-accessible biological compounds. Pseudomonas putida is a bacterium with a highly versatile metabolism, including the capability to degrade or produce organic chemicals.

The COLOSYS project aims to develop a deeper understanding of colon cancer networks and convert them into computer models with which it will be better to predict response to treatment. The combination of computational, experimental and clinical testing will provide understanding of drug resistance mechanisms, and allow personalised treatment of colon cancer.

The project “Rational development of anti-cancer combinations” focuses on precision medicine for cancer by pursuing novel insight into cancer disease mechanisms, combinatorial drug treatment in order to enable selection of the best treatment for the individual patient. The aim is to develop and integrate computational, experimental and analytical approaches to predict and validate anti-cancer drug combinations and produce an integrated pipeline for rational screening of synergistic drugs and for

In the project “Crossover Research 2.0 – Well constructed Knowledge Commons” the domain of precision medicine is explored as a key visionary driver for developing the Knowledge Commons and the enabling of Systems Biology approaches to innovate healthcare. In particular, we seek to engage stakeholder concerns in investigating and establishing strategies for DrugLogics to contribute to the Knowledge Commons in an RRI mode.

MESI-STRAT: Systems Medicine of Metabolic-Signaling Networks -A New Concept for Breast Cancer Patient Stratification.
Breast cancer is a complex disease with high prevalence in the European Union and world-wide. 75%-80 of the patients have estrogen receptor-positive (ER)-positive tumors and are treated with endocrine therapies. Endocrine therapies, which block ER-driven tumor growth, show high efficacy. Yet, a significant proportion of the patients will eventually relapse with metastatic breast

Short-chain fatty-acids (SCFA) are produced from dietary fibres by the intestinal microbiota. They protect humans against obesity. The fate of SCFA and their impact on human fat metabolism is complex and dynamic. To optimally apply prebiotic (fibre) and probiotic (microbial) supplements, a better understanding of their mode of action is required. Our aim is to construct, infer, and analyse a dynamic, multiscale computational model predicting how dietary fibres affect the balance between fat intake

This is a sandbox where DigiSal members can learn to use the SEEK.

Tutorial document: http://tinyurl.com/seek-ds17

The SEEK is a web interface to a database of research "assets" organised in a hierarchical "ISA structure" (investigation-study-assay) [1].
These are further organised into projects and programmes.

Salmon farmed on modern feeds contains less of the healthy, long-chain fatty acids (EPA and DHA) than before. Up until the turn of the millennium, farmed salmon were fed fish oil as a replacement for their omega-3 rich natural prey. However, fish oil is now a scarce resource, and more than half of the fat in modern feeds comes from plant oils that are inexpensive, but devoid of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. How can we increase the omega-3 content of salmon on sustainable feeds?

One option is

Towards the Digital Salmon: From a reactive to a pre-emptive research strategy in aquaculture (DigiSal)

Salmon farming in the future must navigate conflicting and shifting demands of sustainability, shifting feed prices, disease, and product quality. The industry needs to develop a flexible, integrated basis of knowledge for rapid response to new challenges. Project DigiSal will lay the foundations for a Digital Salmon: an ensemble of mathematical descriptions of salmon physiology, combining

The MycoSynVac project AIMS at using cutting-edge synthetic biology methodologies to engineer Mycoplasma pneumoniae as a universal chassis for vaccination.
Designing a universal Mycoplasma chassis that can be deployed as single- or multi-vaccine in a range of animal hosts. Annually, infections caused by Mycoplasma species in poultry, cows, and pigs result in multimillion Euro losses in the USA and Europe.
There is no effective vaccination against many Mycoplasmas that infect pets, humans and farm

For plants, light is a signal that carries information about the environment, and a source of energy for photosynthesis. PHYTOCAL focuses on the interaction between phytochrome signalling and photosynthesis, and seeks to understand fundamental processes that make carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) resources available for plant growth. These unexplored connections underlie biomass production and plasticity, which contribute significantly to yield variability in the field.
