EU Awards $10.8M to Create Network for Systems Bio Research

NEW YORK, Nov. 1 (GenomeWeb News) - The European Union has awarded 9 million ($10.8 million) over five years to establish a new network of excellence for computational biology called the Experimental Network for Functional Integration, or ENFIN.


The network brings together 20 computational and experimental biology research groups across 17 institutions in 13 countries to conduct research and develop products related to systems biology research, in particular the regulation of cell division.


The network will be coordinated by Ewan Birney of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory's European Bioinformatics Institute. Other institutes involved in the network include the University of Dundee, Technical University of Denmark, Wiezmann Institute, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, and Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry.
