Objectives

We are developing a theoretical foundation for a network science relevant to the understanding and design of complex "systems of systems" typified by biological networks. We are particularly focusing on the organizational principles underlying their ``robust yet fragile aspects, scalability, and evolvability, and demonstrating progress with case studies of varying detail using familiar and concrete examples from biological networks and network-centric technologies. Biological examples will focus on intracellular regulatory networks and intercellular communication.
