- the Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology - is determined to become a world-leading initiative in quantitative Systems Biology. This goal shall be achieved by combining Switzerland’s strengths in genomics and biomedical research with its flourishing core sciences as chemistry, mathematics, physics and engineering. In a paradigm shift biology is moving from a descriptive, qualitative science to a predictive, quantitative one. aims to accelerate this shift on three avenues: developing innovative technology to obtain and analyze quantitative biomedical data, via building mathematical models that accurately simulate and predict the behaviour of biological systems, and most importantly: asking the right biological questions.
