Computational Biology, Mathematical Modeling, Bioinformatics
The Mathcell Project was developed to provide biologists with powerful resources for calculation of extremely complicated models. It gives a novel functionality to different GRID services, creating a specific interface for users from computational biology.
1. Short overview
The purpose of the Mathematical Cell Project (http://www.mathcell.ru) is to create the integrated mathematical model of eukaryotic cell based on GRID and distributed bioinformatics' resources. This model will help to solve some scientific and practical problems, such as novel drug design (prediction of their direct and mediated influence on cell), or the development of nanostructures and nanomaterials.
If demonstration is requested please explain what visual or interactive aspects of the contribution necessitate a demonstration rather than a presentation or poster?
The demonstration is requested because of both visual and interactive aspects. The Mathcell includes 3D interactive model of living cell, Web-interface to bioinformatics' resources, parameters setting in model interface and job maintenance in GRID.
The demonstration needs the network connection, projector and screen.
4. Conclusions / Future plans
Further development of the MathCell Project is closely associated with advance of GRID infrastructure, it implies integration of individual components of the model into a program system which would simulate cell processes at different levels – from microscopic to macroscopic scales and from picoseconds to the cell lifetimes.
