This book is intended as a communication platform to bridge the cultural, conceptual, and technological gap among the key systems biology disciplines of biology, mathematics, and information technology. To support this goal, contributors were asked to adopts an approach that appeals to audiences from different backgrounds.
This book is for professionals that consider adopting a systems biology approach
This book addresses the requirements of scientists and re-searchers to gain an overview and a basic understanding of key systems biology methodologies and tools
The contributors have attempted to cover a representative range of life science areas and systems biology methodologies
