Nutritional Systems Biology and Type 2 Diabetes

Systems biology studies include the investigations in various “omics” areas, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, epigenomics, as well as microbiomics. Combining both computational and experimental biology, systems biology aims at prediction of the dynamical processes and the description of … Continue reading
