OMICS Publishes Data on DARPA-Funded BioSPICE Project

NEW YORK, Oct. 17 (GenomeWeb News) - Publishers of the journal OMICS announced today the release of a special issue featuring a series of papers describing preliminary software tools developed as a part of BioSPICE, or Biological Simulation Program for Intra-Cellular Evaluation, a DARPA-funded program.


BioSPICE was designed to aid in the development of computation models, software tools, and infrastructure for experiments looking at cellular function. The papers describe tools for data analysis, strategies for creating interaction networks and computational models, and the application of BioSPICE tools for studying cell function in model organisms, according to a statement released by Mary Ann Liebert, publisher of OMICS.


The issue is available for free online at
