Systems biology and systems regulation of physiological processes

Main Article Content

Ilyukha Lidia Mykhailivna


Systems biology is an emerging discipline focused on tackling the enormous
intellectual and technical challenges associated with translating genome sequence into a comprehensive
understanding of how organisms are built and run. Physiology and systems biology share the goal of
understanding the integrated function of complex, multicomponent biological systems ranging from
interacting proteins that carry out specific tasks to whole organisms. Yet, the challenge for biology
overall is to understand how organisms’ function. By discovering how function arises in dynamic
interactions, systems biology addresses the missing links between molecules and physiology.
