Proposals submitted to this topic will work on the integration of different 'omics datasets and different data types towards the definitive goal of fully understanding the causal relations between the genome of an organism and its phenotype, i.e. how biological systems respond to variations in their genetic make-up or in their external environment.
Proposals will also:
- Focus on systems biology solutions and will develop methods that integrate ‘omics datasets and use data collected in several experiments.
- Take into consideration the study of interactions between different data types.
- Tackle the challenges posed by data quality.
- Involve at least two case studies for the application in one or two industrial sectors where biotechnology can provide added value, excluding healthcare.
Budget:The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU between EUR 6 and 8 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately.
Type of action: Research and Innovation Action.
