Thorough and accessible, this book presents the design principles of biological systems, and highlights the recurring circuit elements that make up biological networks. It provides a simple mathematical framework which can be used to understand and even design biological circuits. The textavoids specialist terms, focusing instead on several well-studied biological systems that concisely demonstrate key principles. An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits builds a solid foundation for the intuitive understanding of general principles. It encourages the reader to ask why a system is designed in a particular way and then proceeds to answer with simplified models.

This is volume one of a two volume set. One of the earliest of modern thinkers to attempt a systematic account of all cosmic phenomena, Herbert Spencer (1820 - 1903) conceived that every species is endowed with its own physiological intelligence, each unit being capable, under certain circumstances, of reproducing the whole organism. He proposed theories of evolution some years prior to Darwin's now famous Origin of Species. Spencer Considered the technical aspects of most subjects he wrote about, In The Principles of Biology Spencer gives a mechanistic explanation of how life has progressed by the continual adaptation of inner relations to outer ones. This book covers metaphysics, biology, psychology, sociology and ethics, and was part of an projected vast 10-volume work, Synthetic Philosophy, in which all phenomena are interpreted according to the principle of evolutionary progress. Spencer's synthetic system had more popular appeal than scientific influence, but it served to bring the doctrines of evolution within the grasp of the general reading public and to establish sociology as a discipline. Together with Charles Darwin and Thomas Huxley, Herbert Spencer was responsible for the acceptance of the theory of evolution.

The study of the normal function of the animal and human organisms and of the diseases which disturb that normal func tion is largely the study of control mechanisms. These control mechanisms are essential for the survival of an organism in a more or less hostile environment. In many ways they clearly resemble the control mechanisms devised by electronic engin eers for running machinery of all kinds and there are many remarkable parallels between biology and engineering. However, it should not be forgotten that the biological systems were on the scene first and that the engineering is a parallel and independent development. It is therefore perhaps a pity that in recent years the study of biological control systems has tended to be dominated by mathematicians and engineers who have moved from these more precise disciplines into biology. As a consequence of this dominance, one often gets the impression that the principles of biological control can be understood only after one has undergone a rather high-powered course in elec tronic control theory. It often seems to be assumed that it is electronics which must do all the teaching while biology and medicine must do all the learning. In fact I suspect that biolo gical control mechanisms are considerably more sophisticated than anything yet available in the world of the physical sciences and that in the long run biology will teach more to control engineers than vice versa.

Overview Inspired by recommendations from the AAAS vision and Change Report. Principles of Biology is reflective of the shift taking place in the majors biology course from large and detail rich to short and conceptual, with a focus on new, cutting-edge science. A succinct and inviting text focused on central concepts, Principles of Biology helps students connect fundamental principles while challenging them to develop and hone critical thinking skills. Five new chapters introduce cutting-edge topics that will benefit students who continue their study of biology in future courses (Chapters 11, 16, 24, 41 and 47)
