  • Targeting the engine room of the cancer cell

    Researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) have developed a highly innovative computational framework that can support personalized cancer treatment by matching individual tumors with the drugs or drug combinations that are most likely to kill them. The study by Dr. Andrea Cali more

  • A developmental splicing program controlling neuronal maturation unveiled

    Neurons, or nerve cells, in the brain communicate with each other by transmitting electric signals, or firing action potentials, through long processes named axons (which send out signals) and dendrites (which receive signals). The capability of firing action potentials, among other functions of mat more

  • Measuring molecular interactions

    ETH researchers have used a new approach to discover previously unknown interactions between proteins and small metabolic molecules in bacterial cells. The technique can also be used to test the effect of medications. Science now has a new “omics” – an interactomics, which deals with the interaction more

EMBO Conference Series: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology

The EMBO Conference Series: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology took place once again at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, Germany, from 8 – 11 November 2014. The conference series aims to bring people together from diverse disciplines to exchange ideas, promote cross-disc ... more

Timing Cancer Treatment

There may be an ideal waiting period for delivering multiple cancer drugsResearchers led by members of the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School had been studying how silencing MDMX, an oncogene, affected the dynamics of p53, a natural tumor suppressor, in cancer cells when the ... more

  • Stochastic Turing patterns in a synthetic bacterial population [Systems Biology]

    In 1952, Alan Turing proposed that biological morphogenesis could arise from a dynamical process in reaction systems with a rapidly diffusing inhibitor and a slowly diffusing activator. Turing’s conditions are disappointingly hard to achieve in nature, but recent stochastic extension of the theory p more

  • The biomass distribution on Earth [Systems Biology]

    The composition of the biosphere is a fundamental question in biology, yet a global quantitative account of the biomass of each taxon is still lacking. We assemble a census of the biomass of all kingdoms of life. This analysis provides a holistic view of the composition of the biosphere and allows u more

  • The scale of life and its lessons for humanity [Systems Biology]

    The scale of life on Earth is shaped by a confluence of biophysical, evolutionary, ecological, and, recently, human forces. Measuring the scale of life offers insights about these forces and raises many more questions. In PNAS, Bar-On et al. (1) offer the most comprehensive quantification to date of more
