March 20, 2006 -- Technology Review, MIT’s magazine of technology, has highlighted two bioengineering professors at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Jacobs School of Engineering, as pioneers of one of 10 “emerging technologies” that the magazine predicts will soon transform computing, medicine, telecommunications, and business. The two professors, Trey Ideker and Bernhard O. Palsson, are cited for pioneering the field of comparative interactomics – mapping the cellular network of interactions among genes, RNA, metabolites, and proteins.

Palsson’s new book, Systems Biology: Properties of Reconstructed Networks (Cambridge University Press, 2006), is the first textbook on a multidisciplinary field of science that was made possible with the development in the 1980s of technologies that permit researchers to reconstruct biochemical reaction networks that underlie a variety of cellular functions. “Receiving this credit in Technology Review is nice confirmation that more people think we’re on the right track,” said Ideker. “This applies not only to Bernhard and me, but also to many other scientists working in this nascent field of biological network comparisons.” The special package of stories in the Technology Review’s current March/April issue focuses on technologies that are increasing the

“My bioengineering colleagues and I at UCSD know how visionary Trey and Bernhard are in this cross-disciplinary field of mathematics, systems biology, engineering, and medicine,” said
