Abstract

Systems Biology represents a new paradigm aiming at a whole organism-level understanding of biological phenomena, emphasizing interconnections and functional interrelationships rather than component parts. Historically, the roots of Systems Biology are multiple and of a diverse nature, comprising theoretical and conceptual developments, mathematical and modeling tools, and comprehensive analytical methodologies aimed at listing molecular components. As a systemic approach, modern Systems Biology is deeply rooted in Integrative Physiology from which it inherits two big foundational principles: (1) a non-reductionist, integrative, view and (2) the capability of defining the context within which genes and their mutations will find meaning.
