Life extension people & session at SciFoo 2008, Googleplex!

Last year I was probably the only SciFoo Camper with an explicit life extension commitment. I suggested & held a session which was related a bit to partial immortalization but was rather about the systems biology perspective in general, illustrated with some examples. So throughout the terrific SciFoo Camp 2007 life extension as a conversation… Continue reading Life extension people & session at SciFoo 2008, Googleplex!

Human proteome project: 21000 genes/1 protein, 10 years, $1 billion?

In order to have the slightest change to design a robust, systemic life extension technology, we need to accumulate every systemic macromolecular, cellular, tissue- and organ level data of the normal, physiological human body, connect the trillions of nodes with scalable software algorithms and suck out the draft of the proper sequence of consecutive treatment/regeneration… Continue reading Human proteome project: 21000 genes/1 protein, 10 years, $1 billion?

Meet the nodes, “clustered hubs” and links of clathrin-mediated endocytosis

Network biology is a way to integrate fragmented benchwork data in order to understand complex biological phenomena. In a recent Nature paper, entitled Integrating molecular and network biology to decode endocytosis Cambridge (UK) researchers authors Eva Schmid and Harvey McMahon of MRC, Cambridge give a good example of a predictive and experimentally useful systems biology… Continue reading Meet the nodes, “clustered hubs” and links of clathrin-mediated endocytosis
