The final goal of this research project is the understanding of all fundamental biological phenomena in terms of physical chemistry. As a model organism for the structural and functional studies, an extremely thermophilic bacterium, Thermus thermophilus HB8, is very promising because of the small genome size, the availability of genetic tools for functional analysis, and the thermostability of its proteins (http: //www.thermus.org/) . In this report, we summarize the recent progress of this research project toward the systems biology.
