Systems Biology

Increasingly in systems biology, it is important to make quantitative measurements of the interacting components using methodologies such as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, metabolomics and mass spectrometry. Computational analysis of such data provides valuable insights into various areas of the biomedical sciences.
