mysteries of human biology to identify strategies for predicting
and preventing diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and AIDS."
The site includes an
overview of systems biology and a
description of research areas covered by the Institute.

- 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.
