WP5: Novel algorithms for multiscale and meta-scale data analysis

WP5 will supplement the creation of an open data exchange ecosystem for cell migration data in WPs 2, 3 and 4 with novel algorithms that are capable of making use of the assembled data. There are two distinct and complementary reasons for creating such algorithms in MULTIMOT. First, they serve to prototype a new way of analyzing cell migration data, thus creating a novel type of bioinformatics meta-analysis in the field and highlighting the enormous potential of publicly available cell migration data. Second, they serve as realistic test scenarios of the standards developed in WP2, the corresponding software libraries developed in WP3, and the data storage and exchange capabilities of the repository developed in WP 4.

Because these algorithms will be used on the data generated in WP6, WP5 will connect the standards and dissemination work (WP2, WP3, and WP4) with the experimental cell biologists (WP6).
