LIBRA The Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research is delighted to announce the launch of LIBRA (http://libra.licr.org/), a novel knowledge-based database on May 23rd, a section of which is specifically dedicated to knowledge integration within the MAIN Network: http://main.licr.org/ . We invite you to join us for a celebratory opening at the Ludwig Institute - 91 Riding House Street, London (from 4:00pm). LIBRA an integrated portal, consisting of cross-linked databases and analytical tools. The novelty of LIBRA lies in the direct cross-linking of data, such as RNAi and gene expression experiments, through techniques, like clustering, with protein-interaction data to map and extend signalling pathways. This approach facilitates a 'systems-wide' understanding across protein and signalling networks and serves as a platform for the mathematical modelling of the behaviour of biological processes.
