An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits (Chapman & Hall/CRC Mathematical and Computational Biology)
Why this book?
One of the earliest books on this subject, Uri Alon presents an engaging account of biological networks. Focussing on transcriptional networks, and their motifs, the book illustrates the nexus between network structures and functions. The second edition of the book launched a few years ago and has some updated content and new material on interesting functionalities such as fold change detection. Uri Alon is a very accomplished scientist, mentor, and a leader in the field of biological networks/systems biology.
