GlobCell was an international research project, funded by the Euro Trans-Bio initiative (ETB), granted by the German Ministry of Education and Research, and coordinated by Dr. Alexander Kel at BIOBASE. It aimed at analyzing and ultimately predicting the behaviour of human cells in a complex environment, using a combination of cell biology, bioinformatics, mathematical modeling and systems biology approaches and tools. After a prolongation, the project ended by December 2010.

The contribution of my department at UMG was to provide integrated semantic and mechanistic network models and methods for comparative analysis of the cellular pathways triggered by more than one stimulus.
