GRIB participates in the project OPEN PHACTS funded by IMI

The OpenPHACTS consortium comprises 14 European academic institutions and SME partners and 8 pharmaceutical companies. Ferran Sanz leads the participation of the Research Programme on Biomedical Informatics GRIB (IMIM-UPF) in this project. The GRIB will coordinate the project work package that will be in charge of the development of applications for the exploitation of the new knowledge resource in order to afford drug discovery questions.

The OpenPHACTS aim is to develop an enabling knowledge infrastructure for the drug discovery projects on the basis of the semantic web technology operating on information that is freely available in the public domain.

The tools IntOGen and Gitools added to the software portfolio of GRIB

These tools have been developed by the Biomedical Genomics Group of GRIB headed by Nuria López-Bigas.

Integrative OncoGenomics (IntOGen) is a discovery tool for cancer researchers, is a resource that integrates multidimensional OncoGenomics Data for the identification of genes and groups of genes (biological modules) involved in cancer development.

Gitools is an open-source tool to perform analyses and visualize data and results as interactive heat-maps. Gitools contains data import systems from several sources (i.e. IntOGen, Biomart, KEGG), which facilitate the integration of novel data with previous knowledge.

Una simulació permet predir arítmies causades per nous candidats a fàrmacs

La toxicitat que provoquen alguns fàrmacs sobre els òrgans vitals com ara el cor, el fetge o el cervell, representa un dels grans obstacles per a l'èxit en el desenvolupament de nous medicaments. Els nous mètodes de predicció per simulació computacional obren nous horitzons en aquest camp.

Manuel Pastor, coordinador del grup de recerca de Disseny de Fàrmacs Assistit per Ordinador del GRIB (IMIM-UPF) ha dirigit un treball realitzat amb Ferran Sanz, Director del GRIB, amb membres del grup de Bioelectrònica de la Universitat Politècnica de València, publicat al Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling que, a més, serà portada de l'edició impresa.

Treball de referència:Cristian Obiol-Pardo, Julio Gomis-Tena, Ferran Sanz, Javier Saiz i Manuel Pastor (2011), " A Multiescale Simulation System for the Prediction of Drug-Induced Cardiotoxicity", Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, 20 de gener.

World-wide challenge of the structural prediction of a G-protein coupled receptor complex (GPCR DOCK 2010)

The honour of the best structural prediction for a dopaminergic G-protein coupled receptor in complex with a small ligand goes to the members of the Computer-Assisted Drug Design group (CADD) from GRIB (IMIM-UPF), Laura López, Cristian Obiol-Pardo and Jana Selent. The model submitted by the CADD group has obtained the first position among more than 100 models submitted by several institutions in this world-wide challenge – GPCR DOCK 2010 - organized by the Scripps Institute of California.

Celebrada la Jornada de valorización y transferencia de tecnología

El pasado 25 de enero se celebró en Barcelona la Jornada de valorización y transferencia de tecnología. Esta actividad, organizada por el GRIB (IMIM-UPF), se enmarca dentro de las actividades previstas por la Plataforma Tecnológica Española de Medicamentos Innovadores (PTMI) para el 2011. Al acto asistieron más de un centenar de personas tanto del ámbito académico (fundaciones, centro de investigación, parques científicos y tecnológicos, etc.) como del sector privado (empresas biotecnológicas y farmacéuticas). Los diversos ponentes remarcaron la creciente necesidad de valorizar las tecnologías, a la vez que se reclamaban más y mejores herramientas para ello. La mesa redonda contó con la participación de todos los actores de la cadena de valor del proceso de transferencia de tecnología. Las presentaciones de los ponentes están disponibles en www.medicamentos-innovadores.org.

GRIB and CRG organize the new PRBB Structural Biology Seminar Series

The new PRBB structural biology seminar series are focused on structural biology at the PRBB. It will complement other seminars in the PRBB like the computational biology series focused on bioinformatics and the technical seminars.
Seminars will last only 25-30 minutes which is a sufficient amount of time to convey the message from the speaker. There is not a fixed day for it, so to take advantage of visitors as much as possible.

The first seminar will take place tomorrow, 21st of January at 11:00 AM at PRBB room UPF (3ª planta) 300.08/350.08 an verse about "The modulation of the endocannabinoid system by membranes"
Speaker: Enrico Dainese, University of Teramo, Italy.
Organizer: Computational biophysics group, GRIB.
