Systems Biology Centres – Audit
ISBE builds on existing expertise, resources and investment to create a new, pan-European, widely accessible infrastructure providing service to research institutions and research-intensive industry in the life sciences sector. In order to delimit the current and future provision of systems biology services and resources in Europe, ISBE is currently running an Audit, which takes the form of direct consultation of several systems biology centres across Europe. Previous to this consultation, an extensive exploration has been done to find all institutions performing systems biology research in Europe, and to identify at the national level the main systems biology actors.
The ISBE Audit on systems biology provision is a fact-finding mission, not related whatsoever with the selection process of the centres that will be part of the operational ISBE. An in-depth and formal process of selecting ISBE centres will be pursued over the next 12 months.
