Systems Biology Faculty

Learn more about this group by contacting Dr. Natarajan Kannan (nkannan@uga.edu) or Dr. Shaying Zhao (szhao@uga.edu).

Systems biology is an emerging approach applied to biomedical and biological scientific research. Systems biology is a biology-based inter-disciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems, using a more holistic perspective (holism instead of the more traditional reductionism) approach to biological and biomedical research.
