LipidomicNet is a large EU-funded project where my department at UMG is contributing to the bioinformatics tasks. So far, our main activities were focussing on the extension of the EndoNet resource towards the systemic regulation of the lipid metabolism. The aim is to provide a (static) model of the regulatory network between the most relevant organs, mainly liver, pancreas, and adipose tissue. While my department at UMG deals with the intercellular pathways, the corresponding processes inside the connected cells are modeled by the TRANSPATH database of BIOBASE, which is another partner in this consortium.
