The cell is complex. With its multitude of components, spatial-temporal character, and gene expression diversity, it is challenging to comprehend the cell as an integrated system and to develop models that predict its behaviors. Rick Horwitz suggests an approach to address this issue, involving system level data analysis, large scale team science, and philanthropy.
