Abstract

The aim is to establish a collaborative research effort in the field of Systems Biology, in the areas of data integration, model building and optimization. This research will resort to a number of techniques in the fields of Data Mining/ Machine Learning. The ongoing Systems Biology research activities in CCTC and CEB, two research centres from UM devoted respectively to the fields of Computer Science and Biotechnology, will greatly benefit from this collaboration with one of the world wide leading groups in Bioinformatics and specifically in the application of Machine Learning techniques to biological problems.
