Systems Biology is a new field of biology, which places the theoretical foundations of systems analysis of living matter into the context of modern high-throughput quantitative experimental data, mathematics, and in silico simulations. The aim is to analyze the organization and to gain engineering-control of metabolic and genetic pathways. The ultimate goal is to gain an “holistic” view of the complex workings of life. The need for a system level understanding of biology is reviewed in this chapter, and comments are provided on the current scientific progress in this field. The current and future directions of experimental design strategies and theoretical approaches are also highlighted.
