                      The complex interaction of molecules within a biological system constitutes a functional module. These modules are then acted upon by both internal and external factors, such as genetic and environmental stresses, which under certain conditions can manifest as complex disease phenotypes. Recent advances in high-throughput biological analyses, in combination with improved computational methods for data enrichment, functional annotation, and network visualization, have enabled a much deeper understanding of the mechanisms underlying important biological processes by identifying functional modules that are temporally and spatially perturbed in the context of disease development. A systems approach to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have produced compelling observations that would be impossible to replicate using classical methodologies, with greater insights expected as both the technology and methods improve in the coming years. In this lecture, I introduce current concepts of RA pathogenesis and treatment, and then the use of network analysis of rheumatoid pathology to better understand its pathogenesis and to identify novel targets for RA diagnosis and treatment.
