Systems Biology: Applications In Cancer-related Research Hardback
Edited by Hsueh-Fen Juan, Hsuan-Cheng Huang
This volume presents an overview of recent developments in systems biology and their applications in cancer-related research.
The ongoing advances in our understanding of genomics and proteomics, coupled with the development of new and more robust tools, have led to an emphasis on analyzing biological systems at multiple levels.
Thus, there is a need to integrate different types of data into a comprehensive "systems" view.Written by active researchers in the emerging areas, this book gives senior undergraduate students, graduate students and new researchers an idea of where the frontiers of systems biology are and an opportunity to learn high-throughput techniques in use.
One of the particular emphases of the book is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms in cancer.
The discovery of biomarkers and anti-cancer drugs using systems biology approach is also extensively discussed.
