Leroy Hood, lead developer of DNA sequencing technology and more recently founder of the Institute for Systems Biology, discusses the focus of his organization in an interview. Systems biology studies all elements of a biological system -- DNA, RNA, proteins, information pathways, and information networks -- in order to understand the system as a whole, using computer analysis and mathematical modeling to describe the structure and behavior of the system.
