Biologists have used a reductionist approach to investigate the essence of life. In the last years, scientific disciplines have merged with the aim of studying life on a global scale in terms of molecules and their interactions. Based on high-throughput measurements, Systems Biology adopts mathematical modeling and computational simulation to reconstruct natural biological systems. Synthetic Biology seeks to engineer artificial biological systems starting from standard molecular compounds coding in DNA. Can Systems and Synthetic Biology be combined with the idea of creating a new science—‘SYS Biology’ that will not demarcate natural and artificial realities? What will this approach bring to medicine?
