The first big challenge in the postgenome sequence era is the deciphering of intracellular networks that map cellular input to response. This involves creation of cell-specific parts list, reconstruction of context-specific cellular networks of parts and modeling of the network at variouls levels of granularity to provide a quantitative understanding of input-output relationships. This talk will focus on well-defined mammalian systems that serve as paradigms for this novel approach to systems biology.
