HMS professor Peter Sorger shares his perspectives on the emerging field of systems biology, and we visit the lab of Roy Kishony, where researchers are using mathematical models to probe the evolution of drug resistant bacteria. Plus, the best-laid plans of mice and men have gone awry again; scientists tell us how differences in the mouse and human brain are complicating Alzheimer’s research. For supplemental information, listen to an extended interview (mp3) with Peter Sorger.
