This quarterly journal is interdisciplinary in scope, and aims to catalyze scientific collaboration toward greater understanding of complex biological systems in the post-genome era. ComPlexUs publishes original articles offering significant new insights into the functioning of biological systems at a "complex" or integrated level, especially concerning the molecular, genetic and cellular mechanisms underlying the networks involved in gene regulation and organism development, intercellular transport, the functioning of the immune and central nervous systems, etc. The formidable complexity of such systems demands new experimental and theoretical tools; hence, ComPlexUs aims to facilitate communication between researchers in a variety of fields such as medicine, neuroscience, biology, sociology, ecology and bioinformatics, as well as physics, mathematics and economics, from which useful analytical and experimental techniques may be borrowed. A novel concept of ComPlexUs is to supplement original scientific articles, where necessary, with companion "translation" texts, written by qualified scientific writers, and aimed at helping all professionals involved in the life sciences to comprehend the sometimes all too specialised information, especially formal mathematics and computer models.
