Systems Biology is a powerful new computational approach to studying complex living systems. Unlike traditional biology that examines single genes or proteins in isolation, systems biology simultaneously explores the complex interaction of many levels of interaction, leading to a new understanding of how they work together.

"The editors have assembled a fascinatingly diverse set of contributions by leading experts on topics ranging from sequence analysis, structural studies, and expression analysis to exploring molecular interaction networks, their influence on phenotypes, and their applications to fundamental problems such as physiology, development, and evolution. These two volumes provide a well-timed and reasonably comprehensive account of major areas in the emerging subject of systems biology."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
