During the last decade an entirely new approach to studying biology has emerged from the collaboration of traditional biologists with those trained in other fields. New measurement techniques are used to observe thousands of properties of cells, and algorithmic approaches are applied to assemble these data into a coherent picture of how cells function in particular conditions. These methods are beginning to reveal previously unrecognized cellular pathways that could be targeted to treat diseases.
