A UCSD-led consortium will use $12 million from DOE and industry, including Life Technologies, for systems biology-based algae research.

Over the next five years, researchers from Ohio State University and Indiana University will study epigenetic changes in prostate, breast, and ovarian cancer cells that cause resistance to hormonal therapy or traditional chemotherapy.

The new center will combine biological and computational research to reconstruct molecular networks in the study of non-solid tumors, as well as establish resources for complex data analysis, and for education and outreach to Stanford's cancer research community.

The partners said that the new center will be the largest sequencing facility in Germany and the first national sequencing center in Europe dedicated to systems biology.

The fifth annual Dialogue on Reverse Engineering Assessment and Methods is seeking participants for the annual evaluation of computational systems biology methods.

ERASYSBIO+ has agreed to fund projects involving a total of 85 research groups from 14 countries. Those partner countries provided a total €18.5 million of the funding, with the remaining €5.5 million coming from the European Union.

The Sage grant is the first CCSB award that has been disclosed. According to a request for applications for the program issued last year, NCI plans to commit a total of approximately $22.5 million per year to fund up to nine centers for up to five years.

The non-profit institute will use $6.7 million to establish an NCI Integrative Cancer Biology Program Center.

The institute, which is part of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, is in the process of completing a $205 million, 300,000-square-foot facility within the UW-Madison campus. An official said that systems biology and computational biology will play key roles.

The $4.5 million in grants will support research that uses 'omics data to understand HIV/AIDS and substance abuse.
