Search the CONFOCAL archive at Message forwarded for Guenter K.Valet: Hi, in view of the obvious facts that: 1. the DNA-sequence and functional knowledge on all biomolecules will not permit the assembly of living cell from their components 2. the analysis of organ tissue or biopsy specimens by advanced array technologies typically provides averaged result for many cells but does not address the discrete reactivity of specific cell populations being decisevely important for particular organ or organismic functions it seems important and promising to address molecular principles of cell arrangement and interaction in a human cytome project. Such a project could bundle advanced microscopy, image analysis and other multiparameter cytometric techniques as well as single cell or specific cell group oriented functional genomics arraying and include multidimensional bioinformatics. The goal of the project would be to systematically explore multilevel molecular interrelations within cytomes as they occur in complex diseases like cancers, leukemias, cardiovascular disease, diabetes or in the susceptibility to infection including the detailed search for new pharmacological access points.
