Physiome Projects: The heart, lungs and musculo-skeletal system

Presented by: 
P Hunter [Auckland]
Thursday 27th September 2001 - 16:00 to 17:00
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Vertical Integration in Biology: From Molecules to Organisms
The IUPS Physiome Project uses anatomically and biophysically based computational modelling to analyse physiological function in terms of underlying structure, material properties and molecular mechanisms. Markup languages are being defined for describing cell, tissue and organ structure, material properties and physiological function. This talk will outline the development of these markup languages and their associated software tools and describe the development of Physiome models for the heart, lungs and musculo-skeletal system.
