Final Report - ESBIC-D (European systems biology initiative for combating complex diseases)

Project ID: 518192


This is the final report for the ESBIC-D project, which received funding under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The project linked together groups from some of the largest European cancer research organisations and centres, as well as resources of leading clinical research groups in Europe with expertise in high-throughput functional genomics and in computational and systems biology resources with the aim of establishing a European framework for a systems biology approach to combat complex diseases using cancer as a prototypical problem.

The report begins with providing some information about certain commonly faced devastating diseases such as cancer and the aim, as well as the research approach that the project will adopt to increase the rates of cure, using cancer as a prototypical disease. The report goes on with the work performed and the end results and then it covers a brief summary of the major achievements. The contractors involved are also stated. It concludes with the main dissemination activities.
