Systems Biology as a career choice
Systems Biology is a rapidly growing field with a bright future. The BBSRC has invested a total of £40 million in six Systems Biology Centres at University of Nottingham, Newcastle University, Imperial College London, University of Manchester, University of Edinburgh and University of Oxford. Click here for the BBSRC Systems Biology Centres webpage.
The official opening of the Centre for Plant Integrative Biology (CPIB) based at the University of Nottingham was opened officially on the 2nd July 2007. CPIB is based at the University of Nottingham's Sutton Bonnington campus and aims to create a virtual root which will serve as an exemplar for using Integrative Systems Biology. Systems biology means revolutionising the way bioscientists think and work by enabling multidisciplinary research combining theory, computer modelling and experiments.
CPIB brings together Biologists, Engineers, Mathematicians and Computer Scientists to generate new data, biological resources and virtual models of plant roots that will aid understanding of how they grow and develop. Click here for the podcast.
