Citation: Joyard, J., Mccormick, S.M. 2010. Plant Systems Biology (editorial). Plant Physiology. 152(2):401. Interpretive Summary: An editorial addressing whether the challenge of ‘‘incorporating information on all genes and proteins in a cell into a composite model of interacting components’’ has matured.
Technical Abstract: In June 2003, Plant Physiology published an Arabidopsis special issue devoted to plant systems biology. The intention of Natasha Raikhel and Gloria Coruzzi, the two editors of this first-of-its-kind issue, was ‘‘to help nucleate this new effort within the plant community’’ as they considered that ‘‘despite the power of its promise, systems biology was still in its infancy.’’ Now, a few years later, we can ask whether the challenge of ‘‘incorporating information on all genes and proteins in a cell into a composite model of interacting components’’ has matured.
