Systems Biology

 

In Systems biology is the coordinated study of biological systems by investigating the components of cellular networks and their interactions,by applying experimental high-throughput and whole-genome techniques, and integrating computational methods with experimental efforts.

The roles of signal processing and the closely related theories of communication, control and information will play constitutive functions as medicine evolves into a translational science resting on a theoretical framework,

Given the primary roles of communication and control as distinguishing features of a biological system, as opposed to merely a collection of complex molecules, the mathematical foundations of medicine naturally fall within signal processing and systems theory, thus, various biomedical problems fit into classical engineering paradigms.
