Bioinformatics and systems biology are two booming research areas studying live organisms. Though having different focuses, bioinformatics and systems biology often share same or similar engineering and computer science methods to elucidate the mechanisms of multi-level biological systems. Regulatory mechanisms underlying biological processes involve interactions at cellular, sub-cellular, genomic and genetic levels. Accordingly, we need to bridge the gaps of biomedical researches at different levels of studies and foster the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research between both bioinformatics and systems biology domains. The synergic research on integrating bioinformatics and systems biology facilitates the advances in biology and medicine.
