Summary ""Systems Biology in Cancer Research and Drug Discovery"" provides a unique collection of chapters, by world-class researchers, describing the use of integrated systems biology and network modeling in the cancer field where traditional tools have failed to deliver expected promise. This book touches four applications/aspects of systems biology in understanding aberrant signaling in cancer; in identifying biomarkers and prognostic markers especially focused on angiogenesis pathways; in unwinding microRNAs complexity; and in anticancer drug discovery and in clinical trial design.
