||Modelling, Abstraction and Sharing for Biological Clock Systems||Systems Biology uses mathematical and computational methods and
infrastructure to model complex biological systems. The data required
have only become widely available within the past 15 years, thanks to
technical advances such as imaging of genetic reporters, and the
large-scale "'omics" methods. Theoretical research is now contributing
to areas of cell and molecular biology that had relatively neglected
modelling, mostly owing to the lack of data. Synthetic Biology aims to
use such understanding to manipulate biological processes, cells and
organisms. I will discuss the progress we have made in understanding the
24-hour, biological clock using these approaches, and the current
challenges for data sharing, modelling and abstraction.
