The process that has developed into genomic sequencing has created innovations in methodology and basic science from its inception, especially in the areas of computation and the creation of sophisticated models. This collection of ten papers covers processes in genomic sequencing that involve analysis and refinement of data, with such topics as mass spectrometry in systems biology, mathematical modeling and optimization methods for de novo protein design, molecular simulation and systems biology, global gene expression assays in terms of quantitative noise analysis, mapping the genotype-phenotype and the contribution of cellular signaling networks, integrating innate immunity into a global systems context, combining forms of analysis for the improvement of microorganisms for industrial applications, genomic-scale models of metabolic and regulatory networks, biophysical models of cardiovascular systems and embryonic stem cells as a form of system biology.

The advent of genome sequencing and associated technologies has transformed biologists' ability to measure important classes of molecules and their interactions. This expanded cellular view has opened the field to thousands of interactions that previously were outside the researchers' reach. The processing and interpretation of these new vast quantities of interconnected data call for sophisticated mathematical models and computational methods. Systems biology meets this need by combining genomic knowledge with theoretical, experimental and computational approaches from a number of traditional scientific disciplines to create a mechanistic explanation of cellular systems and processes.

Systems Biology I: Genomics and Systems Biology II: Networks, Models, and Applications offer a much-needed study of genomic principles and their associated networks and models. Written for a wide audience, each volume presents a timely compendium of essential information that is necessary for a comprehensive study of the subject. The chapters in the two volumes reflect the hierarchical nature of systems biology. Chapter authors-world-recognized experts in their fields-provide authoritative discussions on a wide range of topics along this hierarchy. Volume I explores issues pertaining to genomics that range from prebiotic chemistry to noncoding RNAs. Volume II covers an equally wide spectrum, from mass spectrometry to embryonic stem cells. The two volumes are meant to provide a reliable reference for students and researchers alike.
