Summary

Understanding how signaling proteins interact in a giant intracellular network to control numerous cellular processes is the goal of many biologists. In their Perspective, Brent and Lok discuss a study that takes us a step closer to accomplishing this goal. The Perspective authors describe the application of Bayesian networks and computational methods to elucidating interactions among the signaling proteins in individual human T cells ( Sachs et al.)
