Systems Biology for Smart-Cities

Press/Media: Blogs and social media

Release date: 22/2/2022

Description

Cities — like cells — are characterised by stocks and flows of matter, energy and information; they depend on external resources for their survival; they need to transform these resources in consumable goods; they have to adapt to changes in their external environment.

This article draws some parallelisms between the study of cities and the study of biological organisms through the lens of Systems Biology.
