Field page: Systems Biology

Description

Our cells contain some of the most complicated chains of chemical reactions known to man. These are used to produce necessary building blocks, to control motion, and to power the cell, among other things. It would be extremely cool to know how these complex cycles worked.

That's where Systems Biology comes in. SBists study the reactions that make up the cell's normal behaviour and examine how they interact and interfere. The upshot is a wealth of information into how cells actually function, with a corresponding ton of ideas for us humans to use in our chemical techniques.

Problem Solved

So how do all those cool proteins and chemicals translate into an actual working cell?
