Resources, standards and tools for systems biology

Brief Funct Genomic Proteomic. 2007 Sep;6(3):240-51. doi: 10.1093/bfgp/elm027. Epub 2007 Oct 17.


Modelling and simulation techniques are valuable tools for the understanding of complex biological systems. The design of a computer model necessarily has many diverse inputs, such as information on the model topology, reaction kinetics and experimental data, derived either from the literature, databases or direct experimental investigation. In this review, we describe different data resources, standards and modelling and simulation tools that are relevant to integrative systems biology.
