THE CENTRE: The Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (MCISB) has been founded recently, as one of three Systems Biology centres of excellence granted by the BBSRC and EPSRC. Operating from a rich science & technology base in the disciplines around and in Systems Biology (SB) ranging from e-science GRID computing to molecular biology, it has already attracted industrial support and Systems Biologists from elsewhere, such as Westerhoff (accepting the AstraZeneca Chair of Systems Biology), Snoep (Silicon cell), Tsujii (Tokyo GENIA/bio-text mining), adding to SBists such as Oliver, Kell and others. The pending appointment of an EPSRC Chair in Computational Systems Biology and approximately 10 more appointments ranging from professor to lecturer will consolidate the MCISB as a world leading institute in Systems Biology. We here propose to make this MCISB the home of an EPSRC/BBSRC Doctoral Training Centre for Systems Biology.
