About this book

Systems biology is the study of the dynamic interactions of more than one component in a biological system in order to understand and predict the behavior of the system as a whole. Systems biology is a rapidly expanding discipline fuelled by the 'omics' era and new technological advances that have increased the precision of data. A focus on simple single cell organisms, such as bacteria, aids tractability and means that systems microbiology is a rapidly maturing science. Recommended for all microbiology laboratories, this book contains cutting-edge reviews by world-leading experts on the systems biology of microorganisms. As well as covering theoretical approaches and mathematical modeling, the book includes case studies on single microbial species of bacteria and archaea, and it explores the systems analysis of microbial phenomena, such as chemotaxis and phagocytosis.
