Meeting the ‘systems’ sceptic – with Tim Hunt
Roland Pache is trying to understand complex biological interactions using computer algorithms to hunt for patterns in vast swathes of data.
Undergraduate Sophia Hsing-Jung Li is excited by this new field of ‘systems biology’. In this film they meet Tim Hunt, whose prizewinning work on the cell cycle and current research on cancer centres on the behaviour of individual molecules. Will Tim share the students’ enthusiasm for systems biology?
