Scientists have turned to a more systemic approach to biology in order to fully understand the complex functionality of living organisms. Biologist and Geneticist have compiled an impressive amount of experimental data for a multitude of biological systems. Modeling and simulation of these systems has become a prominent tool in the field of Systems Biology. In this paper we present a review of General Systems Theory, Systems Biology, and introduce BioAnalyze. BioAnalyze is a web application designed to simulate, and analyze, the functional dynamics of biological systems.
