For interdisciplinary integration of knowledge, a common language is required for describing pathways and integrating different kinds of models from various repositories. The APO-SYS (2010) project directly addresses apoptosis with a systems biology approach involving 22 collaborating research institutions around Europe. The team implements an integrated approach of experimental biology, data mining, mathematical modelling, biostatistics, systems engineering and molecular medicine, in order to investigate lethal signal transduction pathways leading to apoptotic or non-apoptotic (necrotic, autophagic, mitotic) cell death.

1 Diagnostic and Prognostic Cancer Biomarkers Reliable biomarkers are crucial for correct diagnosis and prognostic determination. Biomarkers are essential for detecting the presence of cancer, and evaluating its progression and treatment responses. They rely on annotated high-quality clinical samples and on well-structured biobanks, ideally coupled with updated cancer registries. Using biomarkers successfully depends upon measurements in tissues and body fluids to assemble a profile of gene expression proteins and other products.

Patients with poor prognosis can be selected for special therapeutic approaches. Biomarkers applicable in multi-cancer situations are being identified, which are good targets for modelling validation, where pathway analysis reveals important functional categories of tumorigenesis (Tseng et al. 2009). Such an approach is needed to achieve the goal of personalized medicine, with the selection of the correct therapy tailored to the molecular pathways in the tumour. As always, there is the challenge of identification of primary biomarkers in biopsies, and of secondary biomarkers in more accessible body fluids.
