Circuit Biology

Biological circuits underlie most aspects of cell and organismal biology. Circuit biology seeks to understand "mechanisms," the precise structures and interactions of biological parts – be they genes, cells or organisms – that ultimately produce biological function. Circuit biology often involves computational modeling of potential mechanisms, coupled with quantitative tests of the predictions of models by cell biological, molecular biological, and biophysical techniques.
