What is a complex system?

A complex system is a system with many parts that interact to produce behavioural attributes of the whole that cannot be mapped on to those of of its components.

What is systems biology?

Systems Biology seeks to understand the workings of biological systems ‘as a whole’, placing a greater emphasis on the interactions between components, and the consequences of such interactions, than on the components themselves. In this context, Systems Biology can be summarised as the science of analysing and modelling genetic, macromolecular and metabolic networks in order to explain the higher order behaviour and function of complex systems.
