In the last century, biologists studied soil bacteria that naturally produce “chemical weapons” to kill competing bacteria in their native environment. 3). Finally, for many decades, biologists have known that the Pacific yew tree produces a toxin in its bark and needles that kills insects. The crystal jelly (Aequorea victoria), which produces a green fluorescent protein (GFP). The gene that encodes GFP has been widely used by researchers to study gene expression and to determine the locations of proteins in cells.

A toxin called Taxol, found in the Pacific yew tree, is effective in the treatment of certain cancers. Concept check: humans? How does biology—the study of life—benefit living organisms display seven common characteristics, as described next. Cells and Organization The concept of organization is so fundamental to biology that the term organism can be applied to all living species. 5a). The simplest unit of such organization is the cell, which we will examine in Unit II. The cell theory states that (1) all organisms are made of cells, (2) cells are the smallest units of life, and (3) cells come from pre-existing cells via cell division.

Animal and plant physiologists have been studying the functions of complex organ systems for centuries. Likewise, ecologists have been characterizing ecosystems for a very long time. The novelty and excitement of systems biology in recent years have been the result of new experimental tools that allow us to study complex interactions at the molecular level. As described throughout this textbook, the investigation of genomes and proteomes has provided important insights regarding many interesting topics in systems biology.
