Systems biology is a relatively new biological study field that focuses on the systematic study of complex interactions in biological systems, thus using a new perspective (integration instead of reduction) to study them. Particularly from year 2000 onwards, the term is used widely in the biosciences, and in a variety of contexts. Systems biology is the study of the interconnected aspect of molecular, cellular, tissue, whole animal and ecological processes, and comprises mathematical and mechanistic studies of dynamical, mesoscopic, open, spatiotemporally defined, nonlinear, complex systems that are far from thermodynamic equilibrium.
Containing a unique selection of new and updated, high-quality articles from the well-known Meyer's Encyclopedia of Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine, this two-volume handbook is an essential guide for students and researchers wishing to get an overview of the field.
