PG Informatics and Modeling

The Informatics and Modeling PG links above all mathematicians, bioinformatics scientists and medical information scientists interested in solving relevant problems through systems medicine. Dr. Matthias Ganzinger (University Heidelberg, CLIOMMICS) and Dr. Sven Nahnsen (University of Tübingen, Multiscale HCC) lead this project group.


The purpose of the first meeting of the PG, which took place as part of the e:Med kick-off meeting under the leadership of its temporary coordinators Prof. Roman Thomas (University clinics Köln, SMOOSE) and Prof. Friedrich Feuerhake (Hochschule Hannover, SYSIMIT), was to discuss and define the objectives of the PG. The leaders of the PG were also elected. Two following PG workshops discussed the participants' information technology and modeling approaches as well as the future activities of the PG.

Under Dr. Ganzinger's aegis, a detailed online survey was drawn up as PG initiative that asked about the tools and data used by the respective contacts in e:Med projects. Questions also flowed in from the Epigenetics/Sequencing PG and currently, a few PG members are evaluating the results.  50 scientists filled in the survey so far. The results will be made available to all e:Med members on the Intranet in clear form and should contribute to even greater networking within e:Med.
It is still possible to participate in the survey: The answers will flow into subsequent evaluations that will take place on a regular basis

In addition, workshops focused on relevant topics will be organized with the corresponding experts and they should be open to all e:Med members. The workshop that dealt with the topic of data management in systems medicine took place in Berlin in early June 2016. The last meeting of the project group took place at the e:Med Meeting 2017 in Göttingen on Nov 21st.The agenda includes review on the data management workshop and the resulting "best practice" paper. Please find the protocol in the intranet.

The last workshop took place April, 09-10, 2018 in Tuebingen, focussing on biomedical data management. Please find more information here.
