Systems Biology


Systems biology is an emerging approach applied to biomedical and biological scientific research. Systems biology is a biology-based inter-disciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems, using a more holistic approach to biological and biomedical research. Systems biology has revolutionized how modern researchers approach the study of disease. Systems biologists utilize tools from a diverse range of fields and expertise: quantitative biology, high resolution and quantitative imaging, structural biology, genomics, proteomics, mathematical modelling, materials science, network analysis, and many other disciplines.
