The European Center for Living Technology (ECLT) was founded by the PACE project, has been described in this report, and represents a permanent legacy of the project.
One of the specific ongoing projects of the ECLT, continuing the work of PACE, is the project DICE - Designing Informative Combinatorial Experiments.
DICE is a Foundation of Venice project during 2007-2010, coordinated by Irene Poli, University of Venice and ECLT.
A great challenge in designing experiments for Living Technology is the complexity and the high dimensionality of the search space. The main purpose of the project is to develop a new methodological approach to design in an efficient and effective way the experimental space. The approach is evolutionary and adaptive, moving from small and random populations of experiments to informative populations according to the results of statistical modelling. The experiments are conducted at the LivingTech Laboratory, created with the support of this project.
