Modelling Cellular and Tissue Systems

Lead Research Organisation: University of Edinburgh
Department Name: The Roslin Institute

Abstract

The aim of this theme is to use information derived from high throughput technologies such as microarrays and molecular imaging to develop predictive models of cellular and tissue behaviour, and of the function of individual gene products within cellular systems. In particular, this theme aims to provide a framework in which to efficiently identify the function of candidate genes underlying simple or complex traits. The objectives of the theme are: To conduct evolutionary comparisons of transcription networks (transcript and microarray focused). To reverse engineer regulatory networks. To dissect microRNA regulatory networks. To model cellular and tissue systems in diseases.

Description Development and application of the modified Edinburgh Pathway Notation, a graphical pathway modelling language. In particular, its application to the type 1 interferon pathway has formed the basis for further computational modelling of the system. By modifying a Petri net-based approach to run stochastic flow simulations, the dynamic behaviour of this pathway and the transcriptional network it controls are now being modelled.

Development and application of BioLayout Express3D. This tool supports the construction and clustering of large network graphs in 3-dimensional space based on the correlation coefficient between individual gene profiles. It provides a very powerful means to visualise and explore large amounts of data e.g. transcriptomics data and exceptional resolution in defining co-expression networks. The tool and its application for elucidating networks underlying cancer development using meta-analyses of data will be expanded upon during the review.

The building of a transcriptional network model for human monocyte differentiation using sequence- and hybridisation-based expression profiling tools, driven by Institute PIs (Hume and Faulkner), in collaboration with the Riken Institute (Japan).

The proposition and confirmation of a previously unknown source of transcriptional and regulatory complexity in mammals: transposed elements RNAs (teRNAs).

Development of testable models predicting follicle patterning of hair and feathers.
Exploitation Route In addition to the contribution to the understanding of complex biological systems, this project supported the development of analysis tools such as BioLayout Express which have been subsequently been used by researchers around the world.

Title Pathway modelling app 
Description There is a need for formalised diagrams that both summarise current biological pathway knowledge and support modelling approaches that explain and predict their behaviour. Here, we present a new, freely available modelling framework that includes a biologist friendly pathway modelling language (mEPN), a simple but sophisticated method to support model parameterisation using available biological information; a stochastic flow algorithm that simulates the dynamics of pathway activity; and a 3-D visualisation engine that aids understanding of the complexities of a system's dynamics. We present example pathway models that illustrate of the power of approach to depict a diverse range of systems. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - in vitro 
Year Produced 2016 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This approach has been used to model a range of biological systems and we are slowly seeing in an increasing number of people adopting the method.

The purpose was to collaborate with national and international labs to pool RNA-seq data for the chicken (and other avian genomes). This data would provide a rich source of data for gene annotation of the chicken genome. This was used subsequently to annotate the chicken genes by the ENSEMBL gene annotation team, as part of our BBSRC funded work. We provided the organisation, advice for submission of data, provided early storage of data, and we provided all our data (20+ libraries).

PI Contribution I organised the 6th International chick meeting, Edinburgh (2011) and also formed at that event the International Avian RNA-Seq Consortium. The purpose was to collaborate with national and international labs to pool RNA-seq data for the chicken (and other avian genomes). This data would provide a rich source of data for gene annotation of the chicken genome. This was used subsequently to annotate the chicken genes by the ENSEMBL gene annotation team, as part of our BBSRC funded work. We provided the organisation, advice for submission of data, provided early storage of data, and we provided all our data (20+ libraries).
Collaborator Contribution Many labs joined (21+) and one output was a joint publication and yearly updates to chicken genome.

Description International Avian RNA-Seq Consortium 
Organisation Weizmann Institute of Science
Country Israel 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution I organised the 6th International chick meeting, Edinburgh (2011) and also formed at that event the International Avian RNA-Seq Consortium. The purpose was to collaborate with national and international labs to pool RNA-seq data for the chicken (and other avian genomes). This data would provide a rich source of data for gene annotation of the chicken genome. This was used subsequently to annotate the chicken genes by the ENSEMBL gene annotation team, as part of our BBSRC funded work. We provided the organisation, advice for submission of data, provided early storage of data, and we provided all our data (20+ libraries).
Collaborator Contribution Many labs joined (21+) and one output was a joint publication and yearly updates to chicken genome.

Like all big data, its analysis and correct interpretation represent a significant challenge. Kajeka produces a data analysis platform for the visualization and analysis of numerical matrices and networks. Our network analysis tools provide a rapid analysis pipelines producing visually intuitive network representations of data structure, whatever the source, allowing you to make more effective, more efficient, data-driven decisions - quickly. Company offering network analysis tools for the analysis of primarily of omics data. The company's first product, Graphia Professional, is based on IP and know how behind BioLayout Express3D. The company are now (Feb 2019) about to release a new network analysis platform for the analysis of biological data called Graphia. 
Year Established 2014 
Impact The company is still at an early stage in its development but is beginning to gain commercial traction and clients for the software. We have won one Scottish Enterprise grant and have submitted a second for the development of our next generation software. We also secured seed investment of £230k last year. We are collaborating with academic scientists who develop network analysis algorithms or who use network analysis in their work. We have a number of ongoing discussions with major pharmaceutical and platform providers.
