In biomedical science, system biology is an approach to understanding the greater picture by bringing its parts together, whether at the level of the organism, tissue, or cell. It is in stark contrast to the reductionist biology of decades, which requires separating the pieces. In order to analyze biological data, bioinformatics and systems biology use computer methods. ... System biology is a field of study that focuses on understanding whole biological processes, such as protein complexes, metabolic pathways, or gene regulation networks, in comparison to the previous emphasis on single genes or proteins. Computational biology is an interdisciplinary field in which computational methods are created and applied in order to analyze large biological data sets, such as genetic sequences, cell populations or protein samples, to make new predictions or to discover new biology.
