This book applies systems biology methods to analyze Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), providing a comprehensive resource for modernization of TCM research and drug discovery. Using three popular Chinese medicines - Shuanglongfang, Qingkailing, and Liushenwan - as examples, the author illustrates how to find material groups, perform efficacy screening, and conduct safety evaluations of TCM. In addition, the coverage describes TCM in terms of chemomics, genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. By putting modern scientific technologies in the context of TCM, this resource helps scientists and TCM practitioners improve experimental designs and strategies, and better communicate.
