Has “systems biology” become just another term for “genomics”? asks Adaptive Complexity’s Michael White. That conflation of terms “has made the term systems biology radioactive in certain segments of the biomedical community. Systems biology has become the latest buzz-word, instead of an emerging discipline focused on new questions that were difficult to study 20 years ago,” he writes. White suggests that a new term, such as “biological dynamics”, could help set the field apart from genomics.
