About this book

The book encompasses the key disciplines of biology, mathematics, and information technology that contribute to systems biology. It introduces some of the main methods and techniques of systems biology and assesses their contributions based on case studies. The biological phenomena investigated include tissue organization, hormonal control, bacterial stress response, tumor growth and cellular metabolism. Each chapter serves simultaneously as design blueprint, user guide, research agenda and communication platform.
