Abstract

In the last decades, genomic and postgenomic technologies obtained a great amountof information on molecular bases of cell physiology and organization. In spite ofthis, the knowledge of cells and living organisms in their entirety, is far from beingachieved. In order to deal with biological complexity, Systems Biology uses a newapproach to overcome this inadequacy. Despite different definitions, Systems Biology’sview of biological phenomena highlights that a holistic perspective is needed tointegrate and understand the huge amount of empirical data which have been collected.This is one of the aspects that makes Systems Biology so interesting, from atheoretical and epistemological point of view, and that renders it a useful tool tohelp students approach living beings’ dynamics within a comprehensive framework of their biological features as well.
