2016 BIOMAX SYMPOSIUM
BRINGING BIG AND COMPLEX DATA INTO CLINICAL PRACTICE
This year's symposium "Bringing Big and Complex Data into Clinical Practice" will be held on June 24th in Martinsried, Germany. Since 2012, Biomax has hosted this biennial event to facilitate the discussion between clinical management and practitioners, pharma and "Big Data" researchers, health insurance payers, public health and government representatives, funding providers, as well as patient representatives. Past symposia have been a popular forum for these important players to learn from each other, exchange experience and discuss the way forward. The event has limited capacity, so register to secure your spot today.
NEWS
THE NEXT GENERATION OF ENTERPRISE DATA INTEGRATION
Biomax announces a major release of the BioRS™ Integration and Retrieval System, high-performance middleware for fusing data from all kinds of biological and medical databases and mining them for new insights. BioRS version 6.0 has been completely re-designed with a next-generation search engine and semantic network technology. Built for speed and efficiency with an easy-to-use responsive interface, BioRS v6.0 offers greater flexibility to handle future features, growing database sizes, changing security requirements and scale-up to comprehensive enterprise knowledge management.

ENHANCED ONTOLOGY MODEL, BETTER PERFORMANCE
The latest release of the BioXM™ Knowledge Management Environment rounds out the platform's enhanced ontology model and removes the limitations of directed acyclic graphs for non-transitive ontology relation types. BioXM version 5.5 includes permanent snapshots of query results, better auditing and background querying, as well as under-the-hood improvements that boost the platform’s overall performance and allow it to handle even more concurrent users.

APPLICATIONS
CLINICS USE BIOMAX SOFTWARE TO CLUSTER COPD REHABILITATION RESPONSES
Scientists at CIRO+ Expertise Centre for Chronic Organ Failure and Biomax data mining subsidiary, Viscovery, have published a study assessing data on 2068 chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients before and after a 40-session pulmonary rehabilitation program. The patients’ data were managed in the BioXM Knowledge Management Platform and ordered by their overall similarity concerning their multidimensional response profiles using the Viscovery Data Mining Suite. The study demonstrates that rehabilitation responses are strongly differential within the four distinct patient clusters.

BIOMAX, SYNERGY-COPD MAKE NOVEL CHAINRANK METHOD FREELY AVAILABLE
As part of the European Union’s FP7 Synergy-COPD project, scientists at Biomax, the Hospital Clínic-Institut d'Investigacions Biomediques August Pi i Sunyer and the University of Barcelona have published details of a new method, ChainRank, in the open access journal BMC Bioinformatics. The ChainRank method gives users a better way to create and prioritize context-specific sub-networks (e.g., for a disease or a tissue) in complex biological networks. It searches and ranks interaction chains that link user-defined points of interest in the overall network (chains of knowledge). The method is freely available. Learn more about the Synergy-COPD project at the here.
EDUCATION
FROM SYSTEMS MEDICINE TO PERSONALISED HEALTH
At the EMBL Stanford Conference on Personalised Health, Biomax presented the BioXM Knowledge Management system’s ability to integrate multi-level, disease-specific knowledge models with clinical and experimental data as a starting point for better understanding of disease, computational modeling, deep data mining analysis and predictive personalized medicine. The presentation showcased the successful use of the BioXM Knowledge Management at the CIRO+ Expertise Centre for Chronic Organ Failure and in multiple European systems medicine projects on respiratory disease. View the poster here.
KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT FOR PATENTS
Biomax presented the BioXM approach to knowledge management of patent information at the European Patent Organization (EPO) Patent Information Conference. The BioXM system is well suited to enrich patent information through its ability to integrate any data source, build and incorporate any scientific data model and integrate into any existing infrastructure with its open architecture. In the BioXM environment, patent information is put in the context of any additional data sources in the life science domain and can be queried and enriched by text searches and text-mining, sequence searches and analysis, chemical structure searches, and any other third-party tool.
