Description of the organisation
ISBE is a knowledge-based research infrastructure that will empower European researchers across academia, clinics and industry to implement systems biology approaches addressing how the dynamic interactions between biological components (molecules, cells, tissues, organs) leads to the functioning of living organisms. ISBE will actively support scientists in facilitating model-compliant data generation, accessing resources for storing and sharing research assets, making their research assets FAIR compliant (that is findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) and creating predictive computational multi-scale models of biological systems based on integration of highly diverse data sets. In addition, ISBE will provide training for infrastructure users and providers to offer efficient services.
During the Interim Phase, ISBE will start to offer web-based services, named ISBE light. Three types of interrelated service modules will be available and rely on in-kind contributions from the ISBE community:
• Modelling & Theory Services for building, validating, exploiting and expanding predictive computational models of biological systems that enable research groups to implement systems biology strategies.
• Stewardship Manage research assets (data, models, procedures, etc.) in a concerted manner to make them FAIR, i.e. Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable (together with the FAIRDOM programme).
• Education & Training Develop and make available a portfolio of MSc, doctoral and postdoctoral teaching and training programmes.
