Igor Goryanin - Research Interests and Projects - Collaborations


Igor is co-founder of the International E. coli alliance (IECA). Goryanin and his group are currently involved in several high profile international collaborations:

  • SBML - The Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) is a computer-readable format for representing models of biochemical reaction networks. SBML is applicable to metabolic networks, cell-signalling pathways, regulatory networks, and many others.
  • SBGN Systems Biology Graphical Notation aims to help standardize a graphical notation for computational models in systems biology.
  • BioSim, Network of Excellence established by the European Commission under its 6th Framework Programme. The main objective of the Network is to demonstrate how the use of modern simulation techniques can lead to a more rational drug development process, improved treatment procedures, and a reduction in the need for animal experiments.
  • RiboSYS project, funded under FP6, uses systems biology approaches to model pre-messenger RNA and pre-ribosomal RNA metabolism in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and so aid the understanding of these complex cellular pathways.
  • EC-MOAN, the project funded under FP6 aims to develop an integrated model of the stress response system of E. coli, including key metabolic, genetic and signalling modules.
  • International RTK consortium - The Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) Networks Consortium is an organization to facilitate and co-ordinate international efforts for the continued understanding of RTK signalling pathways and its relationship to human pathologies.
  • Riken Genomic Research Centre (Japan) – collaboration in breast cancer and large scale sequencing
  • Systems Biology Institute in Tokyo - standards development in Systems Biology research.
  • Institute for Systems Biology SpB (Russia) – kinetic modelling for complex biological systems(with applications for the drug discovery).
