Systems biology is the study of whole biological ensembles, rather than isolated parts, in order to build a predictive biological understanding of a defined systemís behavior. Synthetic biology has been defined as the design and construction of systems that exhibit complex dynamical or logical behavior. The intersection between these two fields is likely to significantly enhance efforts in design-based biological engineering and therefore greatly increase human capability. This session will cover current applications of systems biology theory and techniques to aid in the design of synthetic biological systems. In addition, efforts that apply synthetic biology research as new tools to expand systems-level understanding or as new concepts in systems biology are of interest.
