Cellular Networks and Systems Biology

A growing number of technologies allow for the genome-scale measurement of biological properties such as protein and mRNA concentrations or phenotypic changes (e.g. response to RNAi knock-downs). The genome-wide nature of the available data facilitates a systems perspective: It becomes possible to go beyond individual genes or pathways and to study regulatory processes of the entire system ‘cell’. However, up to now the potential is by far not being fully exploited.
