  1. Here are some papers that might be of interest (deliberately not typical Systems Biology papers).

    1. One on Systems Biology and drugs…
    Mechanisms of drug combinations: interaction and network perspectives.
    Jia J, Zhu F, Ma X, Cao ZW, Li YX, Chen YZ.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19180105

    2. One on Systems Ecology…
    Carrying photosynthesis genes increases ecological fitness of cyanophage in silico.

    3. A technical one on machine learning…
    Faster Rates in Regression Via Active Learning
    UW-Madison Technical Report ECE-05-3
    Rui Castro, Rebecca Willett and Robert Nowak

    4. An older one on what “biological function” actually means…

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14555626

    5. And a bit of madness…(or is it?)
