Using the computational information theoretic and modelling methodologies to experimental geno- and pheno-type data obtained with for example microarray techniques, gel-based techiques and mass-spectroscopy of proteins it is possible to understand the structure and function of biosystems.

Computational Systems Biology focuses either on information processing of biological data or on modeling physical and chemical processes of bio-systems. Through this type of quantitative systems approach Computational Systems Biology can play central role in predicting diseases and preventive medicine, in gene technology and pharmaceuticals, and in other biotechnology fields.
