Beschreibung

The unprecedented amount of data produced with high-throughput experimentation forces biologists to employ mathematical representation and computation to glean meaningful information in systems-level biology. This book introduces the concepts and theories of systems biology and the applications of systems biology in cancer research.

"This book is a wonderful and significant collection of chapters describing recent progress of cancer systems biology. This is a timely attempt as more and more researchers and pharmaceutical companies are looking into a systems biology approach to treat cancer patients and to find drugs that can be effectively used for cancer patients. At the same time, readers may realize the breadth of subjects that are involved in cancer systems biology."
From the Foreword by Hiroaki Kitano, President, The Systems Biology Institute, and Director, Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc., Tokyo, Japan



Autorentext

Edwin Wang received his PhD in experimental molecular genetics from the University of British Columbia in 2002. He also has undergraduate training in computer science. After working at FlyBase for a year, he moved to the Biotechnology Research Institute, National Research Council Canada, as a scientist working on bioinformatics and systems biology. He is currently a senior scientist at the National Research Council Canada and an adjunct professor at the McGill University Center for Bioinformatics. His work is focused on bioinformatics, computational, and experimental systems biology.
