"Intro to Systems Biology," is a new FREE massive open online course (MOOC) from IEEE and edX. In this exciting new course, you will learn about systems biology, a holistic approach to understanding biological complexity, focusing on how all of the parts of a system work together. This course will teach you the basic concepts of systems biology, including engineering principles and tools developed for dynamic systems (e.g., robots) to better model and understand biological dynamics.
