Fourier transform and systems biology

Definition of Term(s)

System Biology – is a biology-based interdisciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems. From modelling of molecular interactions, to cell processes, to ecology, systems biology plays an important role.

Actual Paper

On the paper “Use of Fourier Series for Analysis of Biological Systems”, the authors used Fourier transform to analyze the respiratory and circulatory systems of anesthetized dogs. This study was conducted to indicate that Fourier analysis is a valid technique for investigation of oscillatory components of the circulatory and respiratory systems.
