It's winter here , negative temperatures, the windows have been closed; I feel somewhat groggy. Open a window this afternoon, may eventually feel better.
The Nature website does appear to contain a considerable amount of information; even if there doesn't appear to be any unifying
structure. Perhaps the inclusion of code will go someway towards addressing that issue.
What I see is a diverse range of methodologies, providing information at a higher level than raw data, and yet lacking the
ability to bring this diverse information together.
For life extension we require the presentation of biological pathways and associated information in a format that's easy to
comprehend. Just now I'm imagining a large screen with a certain
pathway illustrated, a simulation is running and select portions
of the pathway are illuminated to a greater extent than all others; on another panel three dimensional models of the relevant molecular interactions are shown at a high frame rate
using ray, path or other tracing methods.
Artificial Intelligence, most likely will drive this, however
somewhat knowledgeable humans are there also.
Life extension and the mitigation of disease are a balancing
act, the mathematics that might describe this aren't apparent.
Biological pathways hint at what this might be, yet remain
beyond the comprehension of many.
