Components of systems biology. Systems biology supplements experimental biology by providing methods to both interpret and validate new findings. Data mining provides a way to gain insight from large data sets, while control methods facilitate the interplay of modeling and experimental biology. Imaging can be used for qualitative assessments during experiments and also provide a large amount of data amenable for data mining.
