Knowledge sharing and collaboration in translational research, and the DC-THERA Directory.

Splendiani, A., M. Gündel, J. M. Austyn, D. Cavalieri, C. Scognamiglio, and M. Brandizi, "Knowledge sharing and collaboration in translational research, and the DC-THERA Directory.", Brief Bioinform, vol. 12, issue 6, pp. 562-75, 2011 Nov.

...In this article we introduce the DC-THERA Directory, which is an information system designed to support knowledge management for this research community and beyond. We present how the use of metadata and Semantic Web technologies can effectively help to organize the knowledge generated by modern collaborative research, how these technologies can enable effective data management solutions during and beyond the project lifecycle, and how resources such as the DC-THERA Directory fit into the larger context of e-science...
 

Networking with Dendritic Cells

I've recently gone to the hearth of Mediterranean, Athens, for the annual meeting of the DC-THERA network, an FP6 project. A number of people and organisations collaborate in the context of this project, under the hat of  dendritic cells research (DC). Even me, the amateurish biologist, can guess the importance of this kind of cells for the Immune system, and their consequent importance for the development of a number of vaccines and therapies.

A Database for Genomic Expression Data Management

This is the project that made me discover the charm of Bioinformatics, Microarrays and Biology. Here you can find:

Leaf what?

I have been involved in the start-up company Leaf Bioscience, which closed in 2010.
