The adoption of a systems approach is providing new knowledge in many areas of biomedical research from cell dynamics and signaling networks to global metabolism and drug development. The National Centers for Systems Biology aim to promote communication, collaboration, and technology and data sharing to fully realize the potential of this new research field.
The Centers have designed their programs with the goal of serving scientific communities beyond the participating investigators and institutions. Software, databases and data generated by the Centers are publicly available, and research findings are described in Center publications and presentations. Each Center has developed research facilities and tools which will facilitate and advance systems biology research.

The National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC) has created a system called Biositemaps to help scientists share these resources. The Systems Biology centers have committed to using this system, and you can find out more on our local Biositemaps information page.
