Beyond reductionism – systems biology gets dynamic - my latest blogpost looks at how new technologies are reviving old theories and neglected philosophies in biology
How to do reductionism when studying complex systems? Use dimension reduction to find minimal network, NN, or circuit + use mesoscale perturbations to study how properties of architecture connect to function. on progress in systems biology

ICYMI: Beyond reductionism – systems biology gets dynamic - my latest blogpost looks at how new technologies are reviving old theories and neglected philosophies in biology
A wonderful essay of reductionist approaches in #systemsbiology by Kevin Mitchell
Thoughtful and thought-provoking post from . Hoping to contribute to some of the changes he describes. Would have been nice to see a bit more care in discussing the thorny concepts of reductionism and holism, but nonetheless a great read.
This blog by spurred this thought stream. Mitchell points in the right direction about reductionism and complexity sciences, but you can sense a great filter in further understanding.
In which I examine how tools to measure huge numbers of components (such as genes or neurons) + compute low-dimensional manifolds of system dynamics are bringing experimental rigor to theories of enactivism + process philosophy
“Systems in the Wild” — Got me thinking of how this argument may also apply to higher-level pursuits of traditional psych research. Is the classic experiment useful in the grand scheme of understanding human behavior?
I discuss the use of these dynamical systems approaches (that underpin enactivism and process philosophy) in my latest blogpost
What’s wrong with “manifold”? Great word, great concept! As I discuss here: Beyond reductionism – systems biology gets dynamic...
My latest blogpost lays out how I think about these issues: Beyond reductionism – systems biology gets dynamic...
Another nice example of systems biology getting dynamic...
As discussed in other areas of genetics and neuroscience in my latest blogpost: Beyond reductionism - systems biology gets dynamic
Along the lines of approaches I discuss in my latest blogpost: Beyond reductionism – systems biology gets dynamic
Is biology just complicated physics? Can we understand living things as complex machines, with different parts dedicated to specific functions? Or can we finally move to investigating them as complex, integrative, and dynamic systems? via
Well then, this may be relevant! (My latest blogpost): Beyond reductionism – systems biology gets dynamic
