Alogrithmic Systems Biology

An article entitled "Algorithmic Systems Biology" in Communications of the ACM (access to full article requires a paid subscription) describes a relatively new inter-disciplinary field of study. Systems biology focuses on the study of interactions in biological systems from a holistic perspective. One of the goals in using the systemic view approach is discovering new emergent properties that provide a better understanding of processes in a biological system. Mathematical modeling via computer algorithms is one of the foundations of systems biology. The article describes how this approach differs from other approaches which use equations.
