1 CENTER OF BIOMEDICAL COMPUTING FONDAZIONE CARIVERONA AND UNIVERSITÀ DI VERONA SHORT REPORT AND SITUATION AT APRIL 2013 VINCENZO MANCA 1. AIMS The Center for BioMedical Computing (CBMC) was established in 2006 as a joint initiative of the University of Verona and the Fondazione Cariverona with the purpose to respond to the increasing interest for multidisciplinary research in the field of Systems Biology. Systems biology is emerging as one of the most important development in life and information science. Its goal is to approach the study of the complexity of biological phenomena by means of a unique combination of high-throughput experimental technologies, informatics, and mathematics to unveil the inner logic governing biological events. The final goal is to generate mathematical and computational models of biological regulatory mechanisms in order to identify the emergent properties controlling cell and organism behavior. In medical science the systematic integration of high-throughput genomic and proteomic technologies with bioinformatics will help to accelerate drug discovery and to develop more personalized therapies. The challenge of Systems Biology is two fold: the acquisition of a completely new mentality in experimental biology and the development of high-throughput and bioinformatics platforms to obtain and analyze large experimental data-sets. The goal of CBMC is to promote the integration of the human and technological resources in medical, mathematical and computational disciplines, by facilitating collaborations between physicians, biologists, mathematicians, and computer scientists. The CBMC supports teaching as well as multidisciplinary research projects in the specific field of Systems Biology and Natural Computing and is open to international cooperation with other institutions already advanced in this field. 2.
