Systems Biology Article Appears in The Scientist
Contact: Steven Wiley
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Chief Scientist Steven Wiley authored an invited feature on systems biology that appears in the June 2006 issue of The Scientist. "Systems biology: beyond the buzz" gives Wiley's perspective on systems biology, where the field is today and describes his experiences in using a systems biology approach in his research. It also points to other areas of biology that can productively use a systems approach. The article is attached as a PDF and can be accessed at The Scientist home page (http://www.the-scientist.com/).
Wiley, who leads PNNL's Biomolecular Systems Initiative, is on the editorial board of The Scientist, a monthly publication that covers the latest developments in the life sciences. His research has focused on understanding cell communication mechanisms using the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) system.
