What will a human look like at molecular levels? The study behind the general concept of Network Medicine examines the effort to identify the blueprint and principles that will enable us to understand this complex life system at molecular levels. This book presents the state of the knowledge of network medicine and is an excellent reference for both experts in the area and general population interested in life science.—Weiniu Gan, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

This book fills a gap in the literature by applying complex systems theory to the field of medicine. Such application is likely to trigger important results by promoting a very useful shift in perspective. Definitely a book to read.—Guido Caldarelli, IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca
