Overview

Bioinformatics is essential for analysis and interpretation of complex and large biological datasets generated by functional studies and high throughput technologies, such as next-generation sequencing. It is used to propose the next sets of experiments and, most importantly, to derive a better understanding of biological processes. Biological data and the databases storing them are increasing at an unparalleled rate. Experimental approaches to study the large data pool for knowledge discovery are time-consuming, costly and often impractical.

Through a combination of bioinformatics and experimental approaches, it is possible to select key experiments and help optimize the experimental design. Computer algorithms are increasingly used to speed-up the process of knowledge discovery by helping to identify critical experiments for testing hypothesis built upon the results of the computational screening....

It is increasing the need for working dogs in today's society, both in the fields of guide dogs and assistance, as well as detection, security, civil protection, therapy and assisted interactions.

Within this context the qualification of specialist instruction dedicated to assisting people with disabilities, as a support tool and indispensable in daily tasks, as well as in maintaining the good health of its user dogs is necessary.

On 19 November 2009 the Parliament of Catalonia unanimously approved the Law of access to the environment of persons with disability user assistance dogs. This legislation is a step forward regarding the law governing access to the environment of people with visual impairment accompanied by guide dogs, as it not only gives coverage to the users of this type of dogs, but also to all those with hearing impairment, physical, autism or certain diseases that are assisted by other dogs specially trained to guide them, help them in daily tasks or warn them of danger or imminent attacks. The new law guarantees access to places, premises, facilities, accommodation, transport and public or public use for people with disabilities and their service dogs spaces. It also regulates the training and care of such dogs as well as centers responsible for it. ... [-]
