Data Mining for Biomolecular Imagery

Project Director: Bangalore Manjunath, University of California, Santa Barbara

Collaborators: Carnegie Mellon University; University of California, Berkeley; MIT

Amount: $9.4 million

This project will harness advances in molecular imaging to develop next-generation intelligent systems for observing and understanding the function, distribution and relationships of proteins and complex molecules in living cells. Capturing and organizing vast volumes of such biological images, to be housed in a distributed database, will require new information processing techniques in pattern recognition, data mining and databases. The end result will lead to a more complete and integrated understanding of cellular structure, function and regulation. more...
