Complexity in Biological Information Processing
This groundbreaking book explores the structural and temporal complexity in biological signalling exemplified in neuronal, immunological, humoral and genetic signal transduction networks. With discussions between experimentalists and theoretically oriented scientists, this book takes an interdisciplinary approach that may help switch the analysis of biological signalling from descriptive to predictive science and capture the behaviour of entire systems.
- Explores the structural and temporal complexity in biological signalling.
- Represents an unusual collocation of three different areas: immunology, cell signalling and neural networks.
- Contains interdisciplinary discussions between experimentalists and theoretically oriented scientists, in particular those working on computer simulations.
