  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.

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

    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…
    The fiction of function.
    Shrager J.

    5. And a bit of madness…(or is it?)
    Orthomolecular psychiatry. Varying the concentrations of substances normally present in the human body may control mental disease.
