Objective

Systems Biology is an emerging field expected to have a major impact on the future of biological and medical research. It aims at systems-level understanding of biological processes by employing mathematical analyses and computational tools to integrate the information content obtained in experimental biology.
The Yeast Systems Biology Network (YSBN) proposes the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system to develop the field and to advance our understanding of the rules and principles of the dynamic operation of cellular systems.
YSBN will serve to integrate activities in yeast systems biology.
It is proposed to base this Network on a web resource that also provides a database of curated data, mathematical models and simulation tools. This web resource will allow the research community to contribute data as well as mathematical models to simulate biological processes. The community will then, through further experimentation, contribute to the recursive refinement of these models to advance our understanding of the biological process. The vision is to generate reference models of budding yeast, eventually at the level of the whole cell.
YSBN will facilitate the cooperation between experimental and theoretical yeast researchers, and will stimulate the generation of quantitative data obtained in time courses and containing information on the spatial distribution of the individual components of the yeast cell. Defining the requirements for development of relevant experimental as well computational tools will be an important goal of YSBN. Furthermore, YSBN will take an active role in training and education, as well as ensure dissemination of systems biology activities to both the scientific community and the
society.
