Description & Coverage
Description:

Systems biology is the study of the interactions between the components of a biological system and the way these interactions lead to a specific function and behavior of that system.

The Handbook of Research on Systems Biology Applications in Medicine presents concepts of the applications of systems biology in medicine, leading students and advanced researchers to an understanding of current ideas in the complex field of systems biology, analysis of data, and development of models, simulation, and drug development. With over 50 incisive research contributions from international experts, this unsurpassed compendium of critical research is an indispensable resource for medical libraries worldwide.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer science in systems biology
  • Databases for data integration
  • Gene Expression Data
  • Integration of heterogeneous data
  • Medical Applications
  • Modelling tools for data analysis
  • Pathways in Cancer
  • Pathways in diabetes
  • Systems biology
  • Systems biology markup language
  • Systems biology research centers
  • Text mining tools for data collection
Reviews & Statements

This handbook highlights the use of systems approaches including genomic, cellular, proteomic, metabolomic, bioinformatics, molecular, and biochemical, to address fundamental questions in complex diseases like cancer, diabetes, and aging.

– Andriani Daskalaki, Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, Germany

This book links the mathematical models to relevant research questions and contributes to the generation and testing of hyptheses and the planning of experiments.

– Book News Inc. (March 2009)

This handbook provides a good balance among the different aspects invloved in the use f systems biology techniques in medicine. It is an excellent contribution to the existing literature dedicated to the study of systems biology in biomedical sciences.

Editor/Author Biographies
Andriani Daskalaki presently works in the field of molecular medicine and bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. She completed her PhD in 2002 on working in the applications of photodynamic therapy in the area of oral medicine from the Free University of Berlin. She received a two-year DAAD scholarship (1996-1998) for her research in the field of PDT. Dr. Daskalaki received a MS in Medical Informatics from TFH Berlin with her work in “Development of a documentation software for robot-assisted intraoral operations” and a MS degree in bioinformatics with her work in “Variance analysis of multifactor models in gene expression experiments with application to the identification of genetic markers for hypertension.” She received a poster prize for her participation in the International Photodynamic Association Meeting in Nantes. She is the editor of the “Handbook of Research on Systems Biology Applications in Medicine” and has presented many oral presentations at national and international meetings. She is a founding member and committee member of the Greek Dental Laser Association. Her research interest areas include systems biology, PDT, and laser applications in dentistry.
