Systems Biology is a new field of biology that seeks to develop detailed computational models of living cells and organisms. Biological cells are highly complex by nature, therefore we need to analyse large amounts of experimental data and know about all the molecular transformations and interactions going on in cells to be able to reconstruct accurate quantitative models. Such models have the potential to save considerable time and money to biological and pharmaceutical research by enabling us to simulate large numbers of experiments 'in silico' and make predictions about the effects of nutrition, drugs and environmental changes on living organisms.
