Cell cycle goes global.

The cell division cycle is one of the most intensively studied biological processes, yet, in spite of great effort, many questions remain as to how the cell cycle is controlled by cyclin-dependent kinases and other critical regulators. Recent functional genomic and proteomic approaches have yielded new insights into almost all aspects of cell cycle control, including transcriptional circuits, DNA replication, sister chromatid separation and regulation by environmental signals. Perhaps most notably, systematic analysis has begin to reveal meta-level connections between previously distinct sub-processes. As the interconnections between these huge datasets are beyond intuition, mathematical representation and automated analysis of functional genomic data is an urgent mandate.
