Vom Anfang und Ende der Systembiologie

  • Olaf WolkenhauerEmail author


The function of cells and thus the behaviour of molecular networks are dynamical systems. The end of systems biology is then either the happy acceptance of mathematical modelling in molecular and cell biology, or a lack of appreciation for the complexity of living systems. To understand mechanisms underlying cellular functions is a time and money consuming effort. So, why should we nevertheless take this route?
