About us

The successful application of Molecular Biology over the last decades is providing many of the molecular agents underpinning fundamental cellular processes. While this reductionist approach is surely going to be valid in the near future, Biology is now facing a new age, in which questions about how molecular elements act together are of great demand. This is particularly significant for the development of a new Biotechnology based on the rational control of biological processes.

The Spanish National Biotechnology Center (CNB) is launching a new program in Systems Biology in order to promote this new discipline and its Biotechnological applications. Our vision is to bring together researchers with quantitative, computational and experimental backgrounds to understand and engineer complete biological systems. The program is also planned to act as a core unit of a broader Systems Biology initiative at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).
