[BC]2 Workshop: Annotation and Curation of Computational Models in Biology

[BC]2 Workshop: Annotation and Curation of Computational Models in Biology, September 9, 2019, Basel 


The fast accumulation of biological data calls for more systematic approaches for their integration, analysis and exploitation. The generation of novel, relevant hypotheses from this enormous quantity of data remains challenging. Logical models have long been used to answer a variety of questions regarding the dynamical behaviours of regulatory networks. As the number of published logical models increases, there is a pressing need for proper model annotation, referencing and curation in community-supported and standardised formats. 
In this context, organised by members of the Consortium for Logical Models and Tools (CoLoMoTo – http://colomoto.org) and of the Computational Modeling of Biological Systems Community of Special Interest (COSI) of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) (SysMod - https://sysmod.info/), this workshop  aims to review and connect different ongoing projects, bringing together people from different communities involved in modelling and annotation of molecular biological entities, interactions, pathways and models.
