21th National & 9th International Congress on Biology

:: Prof. Denis Noble



Why does the world need an integrative systems 
approach to biology?

The Big Question
It is now 20 years since the first human genome sequence was announced in 2001
The expectation was that, by now, we would have cures for cancer, heart disease, and for most of the major diseases of the organs and systems 
We have made incremental progress, but nothing like the major change that was predicted.


WHY...?

ANSWER

We got genetic causation the wrong way round
Genes are used by organisms, not the reverse
The organism activates, controls, and modifies its genome
What is the evidence and what are the implications for Biology in the 21st century?
Those are the topics of this Lecture

Prof. Denis Noble developed the first mathematical model of cardiac cells in 1960 using his discovery, with his supervisor Otto Hutter, of two of the main cardiac potassium ion channels. These discoveries were published in Nature (1960) and The Journal of Physiology (1962). The work was later developed with Dick Tsien, Dario DiFrancesco, Don Hilgemann, Yung Earm, Ten Tusscher & Panfilov, and others to become the canonical models on which more than 100 cardiac cell models are based today. All are available on the CellML website. 
More recently he has focussed on developing skeletal muscle models, with articles published in the ground-breaking PHYSIOME journal:  formulation of the model and its use in the relief of muscle cramp. More information on this project on https://www.denisnoble.com/systems-biology/
He was elected President of the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS) at its Congress in Kyoto in 2009. He was then elected for a second term at the 2013 Congress in Birmingham, UK. He also delivered the opening plenary lecture at the Congress (see Music of Life link) which is also published as an article in Experimental Physiology (2013). He is the author of the first popular book on Systems Biology, The Music of Life, and his most recent lectures concern the implications for evolutionary biology. To follow the debate on this see the FAQ (Answers) pages on the www.denisnoble.com website.His book, Dance to the Tune of Life. Biological Relativity, extends the systems approach to biology, including evolutionary biology.
