Abstract

The convergence between computer science and biology occurred in successive waves, involving deeper and deeper concepts of computing. The current situation makes computer science a suitable candidate for becoming a philosophical foundation for systems biology with the same importance as mathematics, chemistry and physics. However, this significant opportunity is not a free lunch. New developments and a strong integration of different fields of computing are needed to face the challenges of systems biology. One of these developments is that of a complex and expanding applicative domain that can open entirely new avenues of research in computing and eventually help it become a natural, quantitative science.
