Abstract
Modern biological science in the past 50 years has made a spectacular journey providing us fascinating insights into the nature of living organisms and leading to accumulation of incredible amount of information. Nowadays, we observe introduction of the new systems approaches that allow us to supplement the qualitative nature of the life sciences by quantitative and mechanism-driven analysis. More and more scientists are becoming attracted by the unique opportunities that are provided by the novel synthetic approaches, encompassed by the systems biology, systems physiology and systems pharmacology in various fields. Right now, it is not simply mathematical or computational modelling of biological systems: a wide range of tools, including various approaches from big data field, progressive statistical methods, "omics" and others, are used to get insight into the mechanism of health and disease.
