Thinking like engineers has transformed a new wave of UCSF scientists into systems experts who use big computers and big technology to ask the biggest question of all: How does life work? A new field called systems biology looks at how all components of biological systems work together. This approach differs radically from the traditional approach to science, which often looked at the workings of individual components within a system.
