Rapid progress of experimental biology has provided a huge flow of quantitative data, which can be analyzed and understood only through the application of advanced tech- niques recently developed in theoretical sciences. On the other hand, synthetic biology enabled us to engineer biological models with reduced complexity. In this review we dis- cuss that a multidisciplinary approach between this sciences can lead to deeper under- standing of the underlying mechanisms behind complex processes in biology. Following the mini symposia “Noise and oscillations in biological systems” on Physcon 2011 we have collected different research examples from theoretical modeling, experimental and synthetic biology.
