Suggested Readings
Welcome to overwhelming domain of Systems Biology and it's Translation. Here you will find some useful references & links collected and curated by our members to help you in an understanding of the importance of the subject, activities across the globe, and the dynamic & ever changing facets of Systems Biology and its Translation towards society. This page may help the upcoming generations to get more interested in the area of Systems Biology, transcendent themselves from their own academic background and culture to move towards the quantitative investigation of biological system across the scales and ultimately it's implication.

  • Experiments and Quasi-Experiments

    An experiment is a study in which the researcher manipulates the level of some independent variable and then measures the outcome. Experiments are powerful techniques for evaluating cause-and-effect relationships. Many researchers consider experiments the "gold standard" against which all other research designs should be judged. Experiments are conducted both in the laboratory and in real life situations.

  • Strategy on Education in Systems Biology

    Systems Biology is an area that needs a multi-/interdisciplinary framework, and hence needs a different curriculum.

    • Experts from Europe are now thinking on it. Please see our blog on Thursday, 26 May 2016 for details.
    • Comments from Indian experts are also important, as India not only holds the central position in South Asian countries but also it holds the wide variations of cultural and ethnic diversity. For details please see our Research Section.

  • Integrative Physiology/Bioengineering

    An early comprehensive review shows a logical merging of the separated disciplines - Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Bioengineering, Physiology and Medicine by Ideker T, Winslow R, Lauffenburger AD (2006) Bioengineering and Systems Biology, Annals of Biomedical Engineering, DOI: 10.1007/s10439-005-9047-7

  • Prospects & Careers in Systems Biology

    The job opportunities aren't necessarily tied to a specific geographic location, either. Collaborators can work remotely on a common project. Wet-lab data generated at one site might be analyzed by group members cyber-networking from a distance. "It's more about getting the right people together to address the problem, no matter where they are," says Hlatky. Systems biologists just need "the ability to see the big picture and to have an open mind. Anyone can get into this game."

    Career: Actually, all researchers need to get into the game, according to Jens Nielsen, professor of systems biology at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. "The tools, techniques, and approaches of systems biology are becoming standard in research and industry," he says. "To get a life science job in 10 or 20 years, you will simply be expected to have competency in it.”

  • What makes biology unique? Considerations on the autonomy of a scientific discipline

    Mayr E (2004). Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, New York, Melbourne, Madrid, Singapore.
    "Apart from the insistence that biology is not reducible to chemistry and physics, ...the book covers many useful themes. Twelve chapters span topics such as evolutionary theory, ..., the origin of humans and astrobiology. The main strength of the book is that each topic is discussed clearly, and is often broken down into simpler ideas to allow components to be evaluated or tested separately. A particularly strong feature is Mayr’s destruction of orthogenesis, the ‘Onward and Upward’ model of evolution that still dominates much current thinking (especially from molecular biologists untrained in evolution). Orthogenesis implies an almost inevitable advance to a higher state: prokaryotes to eukaryotes, unicellular to multicellular organisms, primates to humans" by D Penny in Biology and 'physics envy' 2005 | EMBO Reports | 6 |

  • Cybernetics of Living Matter: Nature, Man, Information

    In this book [IM Makarov (Editor), (1987) MIR Publishers, Moscow] contributors discuss the achievements in biology from the viewpoint of cybernetics, describe multiple functions that constitute living matter, the basis of brain reliability, the psychics modeling limits, and the mathematical methods in psychology. Also they examine the problems relating to life and age, death and immortality, and the experimental ways of making life longer.

    Brief Contents :
    I. Biology & Information : a. Biology Today, b. Cybernetics standpoint
    II. The Complexity of Living Systems : a. Integrity of Life, b. Brain and Intelligence
    III. Difficulties on the Road to Truth : a. Scientific Methods in Cognition, b. New Horizon

  • Information on Translational Research

    With its focus on multi-disciplinary collaboration, translational research has the potential to advance applied science. This has been attempted particularly in medicine with translational medicine, research that aims to move “from bench to bedside” or from laboratory experiments through clinical trials to point-of-care patient applications.

  • Information on Systems Biology

    Systems biology is the computational and mathematical modeling of complex biological systems. It is an emerging engineering approach applied to biomedical research. Systems Biology is a biology-based inter-disciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems, using a holistic approach to biomedical research.

  • Information on Cybernetics

    Cybernetics is a transdisciplinary approach for exploring regulatory systems, their structures, constraints, and possibilities. Cybernetics is relevant to the study of systems, such as mechanical, physical, biological, cognitive, and social systems. Cybernetics is applicable when a system being analyzed incorporates a closed signaling loop; that is, where action by the system generates some change in its environment and that change is reflected in that system in some manner (feedback) that triggers a system change...
