    Listening in on cancer cross-talk

    The use of inhibitors to components of cancer signaling pathways is dogged by resistance and cross-talk upregulating compensatory pathways. A new computational framework characterizes the cross-talks between pathways in breast cancer cell lines.

    Predicting C. difficile drug targets

    A highly curated metabolic network model of the bacterium Clostridium difficile, which can cause serious hospital infections, predicts a number of essential genes presenting potential drug targets, some of which have homologs with existing inhibitory drugs.

BMC Systems Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on experimental and theoretical aspects of the function of biological systems at the molecular, cellular or organismal level, in particular those addressing the engineering of biological systems, network modeling, quantitative analyses and the integration of different levels of information.

BMC Systems Biology is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
