This project was funded by the the Land Niedersachsen and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF, German acronym: EFRE). It aimed at developing approaches and tools for the computer-assisted representation and modeling of various cellular states associated with diseases. The underlying idea was that a specific disease state is a particular cellular state, maybe even as stable as any normal cellular state, so that it should be possible to characterize it as a specific activity state of the regulatory network of the affected cell(s). After a prolongation, the project ended March, 2011.
