The »Magdeburg Center for Systems Biology« (MaCS) was formed in 2007 as an initiative of the University of Magdeburg and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems. It is one of four research centres in Systems Biology that have been funded with financial support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany (BMBF). Focus of our research is the development of new aproaches in systems biology and their application to the analysis and reconstruction of molecular networks for signal processing and regulation of cellular processes. As model organisms various pro- and eucaryotic species, e.g. cells of the human immune system, that respond to viral or bacterial infection provides as a basic for research. The goal is the establishment of new, broadly applicable concepts for modeling and systems analysis with reliability on different levels of molecular and functional complexity.

GeneGo is a leading provider of data mining & analysis solutions in systems biology. Our data mining tools and databases help to capture and define the underlying biology behind different types of high-throughput experimental data and understand the effects of small molecule drug compounds in human tissues. We provide systems biology solutions for a full range of applications in life science research and drug development, from pre-clinical discovery and NCE applications to clinical trials, covering all aspects of biology and chemistry.
The Netherlands Institute for Systems Biology (NISB) has been established early 2007.
NISB research will be characterised by the iterative cycle of experiment ----> predictive model --> quantitative prediction --> experimental verification --> improved model.
NISB will initially concentrate on the integrated functioning of metabolic, signal transduction and genetic networks in combination with systems that drive the generation of shape and force in cells. NISB will integrate expertise from biologists, chemists, physicists, and mathematicians available within Dutch research organisations.
Systems Biology Research Unit in a biotechnology research park. The Unit is devoted to pursuing fundamental and applied research in the Life Sciences from a systems biology standpoint.
The Centre for Integrative Systems Biology at Imperial College (CISBIC) was established in 2005 with investment from the BBSRC. CISBIC will use state-of-the-art technologies to look at the interactions of a disease causing organism and its host on the level of molecules and individual cells. This will provide a platform for development of novel approaches to fight infectious diseases in humans, animals and plants. The centre will pioneer the development of new technologies in Systems Biology - a new approach to genomics which uses complex computational and mathematical analysis to advance on traditional methods.
Systems biology researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) are focused on understanding gene and protein networks involved in individual cell signaling, communication between cells in communities, and cellular metabolic pathways. Our unique set of advanced instrumentation and technologies provide a strong technical
infrastructure for our systems biology research. We combine world-class, high-throughput proteomic tools; advanced sensors; precise analytical methods; enhanced imaging capabilities; and sophisticated computational tools to characterize and model cells responding to environmental changes, interrogating their surroundings, and communicating with other organisms in communities.
The Institute for Advanced Biosciences, established in the spring of 2001, is a pioneering research institute part of Keio University, Japan. Ongoing research activities focus on multiple aspects of systems biology and bioinformatics and aim, among other things, toward the complete description, understanding, and in silico modeling of the E. coli
bacterial cell and other living organisms.

Systems Biology at Rostock University
The Systems Biology and Bioinformatics research group at Rostock University (O.Wolkenhauer) focusses on the development of systems- and control methodologies, using mathematical modelling and statistical data analysis applied to complex dynamical systems. Although these methodologies that can be applied in general, we concentrate on applications in molecular and cell biology.
Tyson Lab, Virginia Tech, USA
A research group located at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, specializing in computational models of cell cycle regulation.
The group also develops software for network modeling (JigCell), parameter estimation (PET), and bifurcation analysis (Oscill8).
Systems biology at PNNL is focused on understanding cellular networks-protein networks involved in cell signaling as well as networks of cells and their metabolic pathways. Advanced sensors, precise analytical methods, enhanced imaging, sophisticated computer modeling-these are combined to observe cells responding to environmental changes, interrogating their surroundings, and communicating with other organisms in communities.
