Biomax Informatics Develops Knowledge Management Solution NeuroCONNECT for Human Brain Project
PLANEGG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Biomax Informatics AG today announced the development of a novel knowledge management and database solution NeuroCONNECT for EBRAINS, the digital research infrastructure created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project.
NeuroCONNECT allows the semantic integration and management of multimodal brain connectivity information and brain atlases in EBRAINS. The new system will be configured in the NeuroXM™ Brain Science Suite of Biomax. Connectome data will be enriched with metadata from anatomical ontologies, brain atlases and demographic information. This way NeuroCONNECT will become a knowledge hub for all connectome data in the EBRAINS infrastructure.
"We are very proud to have been selected as a partner for EBRAINS and the Human Brain Project, the largest and most influential brain science project in Europe," comments Dr. Klaus Heumann, Chief Executive Officer at Biomax Informatics. “With NeuroCONNECT we will make a valuable contribution to EBRAINS and to all research related to brain disorders and mental health issues.”
EBRAINS was launched in 2019 and will continue to be available to the neuroscience community worldwide also beyond the ten-year life of the Human Brain Project.
