Default A Human Cytome Project ?



Hi,

I was wondering if there is already something going on to set up a sort of
"Human Cytome Project" ? In my opinion the hardware and most of the
software seems to be avaialable to set up such a project ? For the
cellular level, light-microscopy based reader technology would be very
interesting to use ?

Studying and mapping the genome, transcriptome and proteome at the
organisational level of the cell for various celltypes and organ models
could provide us with a lot of information of what actually goes on in
organisms in the spatio-spectro-temporal space ?

I have been thinking (working) about a concept which could provide the
basic framework for exploring and managing this cellular level of
biological organisation research on a large scale, but I would like to
know if there is already some thought/work going on in the direction of
setting up an initiative such as a "Human Cytome Project" ?

This is just an idea, so I am really interested to hear if there is
something in it, or even if it is not worth while what I just wrote.

Best regards,

Peter Van Osta

What's a cytome? The name suggests the set of all cells, or possibly cell
types, in an organism; is that what you mean?

Hi,

Here are some links to websites with information about Cytomics, this will
provide you with some information and background about what I mean with a
"Human Cytome Project" (see below in this email).

I got the idea about using massive parallel "readers" on a
"high-throughput" backbone for Cytomics while I visited the Sanger Center
a few years ago where I saw a huge room "buzzing" with DNA-sequencing
machines.

I wanted to design and develop a cell-screening system, based on a
microscopy-based reader which could do for Cytomics what DNA-sequencing
machines did for Genomics.

Hi,

As my original post on "A Human Cytome Project ?" on Monday 1 Dec 2003
seems to have generated quite a lot of interest in the scientific
community, I decided to put a copy with some expanation on my personal
website too:

I hope to elucidate my ideas a bit more in the near future, but I am on a
tight schedule to get my professional work done, so it may take a while
before I can put something together for publication on my website.

Regards,

Peter Van Osta

To send me an email, remove the "_NOSPAM" and "ROMMEL_"
