Systems Biology is an approach to understanding biological systems by integrating experimental data with mathematical and computational modelling. By their nature, systems biology project tend to be larger, cross-discipline activities. The BDSG has been involved with a number of projects in recent years.
Selected completed projects
The Centre for Integrative Systems Biology at Imperial College (CISBIC) was established following the award of £6m by the BBSRC and EPSRC to enable multi-disclipinary research combining theory, computer modelling and experiments in a systems approach across the life sciences.
The BDSG provided bioinformatics support to members of CISBIC, with two members of staff tasked with developing the data infrastructure for the centre.
CISBIC has now merged with the Centre for Bioinformatics, forming the Centre for Integrative Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (CISBIO).
