    Now its time for thinking to joint all of the data generate in divergent discipline
    and analyse them all together.

    There will be a super symposium at Montreal Canada with bright speakers from all around the word.

    The Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC) is a new center with the theme Systems-Biology to guide their development.

    Its why there will be the first Canadian symposium in Systems Biology in Immunology and Cancer the next summer in the middle of July.

    Stay tune more news will come soon.

    Visit regularly the web site will it is under construction.

    Unfortunately the term systems biology was kidnapped by microbiologists.

    In what way?

    A lot of the best work that would be considered "systems biology" has been done in eukaryotes, particularly in Yeast.

    We didn't kidnap anything, it came along willingly.

    That's what Debra Lafave said.

    Seriously, she didn't kidnap anyone at all.

    Microbiologist study yeast too, and many other eukaryotes. Obviously the border between regular biologist and microbiologist is not fixed in stone.

    At least I had to take courses in mycology for my micro major.

    haha, true enough

    I meant molecular biologist who don't work specifically on microorganisms for the purpose of understanding microorganisms.

    Are non-molecular biologists regular biologists as well?

    Sure, everyone can be a regular biologist.

    I disagree on that.

    We occasionally have some dentist coming through the lab. And while most of them are turned into decent biologists, some simply cannot.
