MMML-MYC-SYS is a interdisciplinary consortium where partners from clinical haemaoncological study groups, pathologists, geneticicts, cell biologists as well as mathematicians, statisticians and bioinformaticists have allied. The goal is to investigate the process of development of B-cell lymphoma under special consideration of mutation of MYC. MYC is known to support the development and growth of tumors. This consortium collected and evaluated comprehensive molecular-genetic data for this purpose.

B-cell lymphoma is the most frequent lymphoid neoplasia accounting for one third of all lymphomas. R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone) is the current treatment standard, leading to high cure rates especially in younger patients. Although the 3-year event-free survival is about 60% even for elderly patients between 60-80 years old, the remainder of patients eventually relapse and the majority die of their disease.

The Health Atlas - Local Data Hub/Leipzig is an alliance of medical ontologists, medical systems
biologists and clinical trials groups to design and implement a multi-functional and quality-assured
atlas. It provides models, data and metadata on specific use cases from medical research fields.
