What is Systems Biology

What is Systems Biology?

Simply put, systems biology is the study of an organism as a whole rather than as a sum of its parts. Instead of analyzing individual components or aspects of the organism, such as sugar metabolism or a cell nucleus, systems biologists simultaneously study all the components and the interactions among them, all as part of one system.

Teacher Testimonials

Tim Fowler, Olympic High School, Bremerton, WA

“These modules continue to be amongst the favorite activities of the year with my students.”

Dexter Chapin, Seattle Academy, Seattle, WA

“One of the really outstanding characteristics of these modules is the degree of continuity from one to another. While each module can stand alone, the skills and competencies developed in on will be used in the next.”

Mari Herbert, Lynden High School, Lynden, WA

“The curriculum is very useful for addressing many Next Generation Science Standards at once and the equipment and materials required are inexpensive and manageable for any teacher and in any setting.”
