(Fig.1) The top timeline represents the root of systems biology in mainstream molecular biology, with its emphasis on individual macromolecules. Scaled-up versions of this effort then induced systems biology as a way to look at all those molecules simultaneously, and consider their interactions. The lower timeline represents the lesser-known effort that constantly focused on the formal analysis of new functional states that arise when multiple molecules interact simultaneously.
