Why do we have five fingers? Join AMGEN teacher webinar on Systems Biology, 25 November 2013



The webinar will introduce Systems Biology - an emerging interdisciplinary field studying complex interactions within biological systems. The host - Dr Neus Martínez Abadía - will use our hand as an example of complex biological system and show how Systems Biology explains its development.

How in a few days a chunk of undifferentiated cells becomes a patterned structure with five digits made of bone, cartilage, muscle and skin.
