Systems Biology: A new challenge for ILP

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Systems biology is central to the post-genomic agenda and there are plans to construct complete mathematical models of unicellular organisms. An approach to such comprehensive models should be done in an incremental fashion, first constructing models of smaller sub-systems, and then integrating these component modules into a single construct, representing the entire cell. The problem is to ensure that the modules can be joined up in a seamless manner to make a complete working model of a living cell that makes experimentally testable predictions and can be used to explain empirical datasets. It is needed to ensure that the sub-system models are encoded in a truly modular fashion, and that the individual modules are fully interoperable.
