System Modeling in Cellular Biology: From Concepts to Nuts and Bolts
Research in systems biology requires the collaboration of researchers from diverse backgrounds, including biology, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and biochemistry. These collaborations, necessary because of the enormous breadth of background needed for research in this field, can be hindered by differing understandings of the limitations and ...more

just the right mix of breadth and depth to bring me up to speed with what's going on right now in the modeling sector of systems biology. each chapter by different authors, all of whom are immersed in this field. some chapters us a lot of math, while others are more qualitative. learned a lot! loved the idea that modularity is adaptive. makes sense, since evolvability is adaptive, since species that don't evolve, die out, and modularity directly enables evolvability. this is in contradiction to ...more
