About the Systems Biology Research Specialisation
The Systems Biology Research Specialisation was established at the University of Skövde in 2007. The specialisation encompasses five research groups active in the area of systems biology, united by a common goal of studying the relationships and interactions between various parts of complex biological systems. The systems being studied range from the molecular and cellular levels (biomedicine, infection biology, bioinformatics, physiology), to populations of individuals (theoretical ecology).
What is Systems Biology?
Systems biology is a multi-disciplinary research field where information from different levels of detail is integrated, with the aim of understanding the function of complex biological systems. We develop and apply methods within bioinformatics and mathematical modeling for studies of such systems in infection biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, theoretical ecology and biomedicine.
