Progress Report 2006


The progress report summarizes the accomplishments of the previous year (2006), explains how to use the software, and offers interpretations of the results.  This year, we consider the problem of reverse and forward engineering and show how a universal database can contribute to this undertaking. 

Topics include:

  • Standardization
  • Simplifying complexity
  • Decimal repertoire equations
  • Research papers summarized as equations
  • Experiments designed as equations
  • Stoichiometry of parts larger than molecules
  • Linear vs. nonlinear biology
  • Engineering reverse and forward

The page below - taken from the Progress Report - summarizes biology both locally and globally as a collection of equations.  It characterizes biology as a highly ordered and rule-based system.
