The Living Human Project aims to create an in silico model of the human musculo-skeletal apparatus which can predict how mechanical forces are exchanged internally and externally at any dimensional scale from the whole body down to the protein level. This model should be designed as an infrastructure that can be updated and extended whenever new data and algorithms become available. It should also account at any level for the inter-subject variability observed in the population. The Living Human Digital library aims to develop this infrastructure.
Around a community building and collaborative working server we plan to develop: an application framework for management, fusion and exchange of biomedical digital data; a service framework for the development, the sharing and the choreography of software services such as interactive extraction of isosurfaces, automatic image segmentation, automatic mesh generation, signal filtering, FE solvers, etc.; a knowledge management framework that let you develop Internet-based services that keep all the data and algorithmic resources of the repository organised in agreement with a dynamically defined ontology, and services for advanced resource discovery and retrieval, web services choreography, and maintenance of the metadata and of the ontology.
