Metadata For Systems Biology

This video was recorded at 3rd International Workshop on Machine Learning in Systems Biology (MLSB), Ljubljana 2009. The ease with which modern computational and theoretical tools can be applied to modeling has led to an exponential increase in the size and complexity of computational models in biology. At the same time, the accelerating pace of progress also highlights limitations in current approaches to modeling. One of these limitations is the insufficient degree to which the semantics and qualitative behaviour of models are systematised and expressed formally enough to support unambiguous interpretation by software systems. As a result, human intervention is required to interpret and connect a model's mathematical structures with information about the its meaning (semantics). Often,... Show More
