Systems Biology: An Approach
While many commentators agree that it holds ‘great promise’ forbiomedical research, there is no commonly accepted definition of what Systems Biology actually is. I will argue that Systems Biology is an approach to research in the life sciences, rather than a specific methodology or field of application. I will identify several components that I think Systems Biology should to incorporate in order for this approach to be successful, but which are often overlooked by practitioners; and I will illustrate these with examples drawn from our work at the Systems Biology Laboratory at the University of Melbourne.
