Touchbook (App)

A journey through the human body

To supplement the documentary film “The Human Body: the ultimate frontier of complexity”, has produced an app that allows users to take a journey through the human body from a systems biology perspective. The app comes in the form of a touchbook that uses text, images, films and games to introduce users to some of the cutting-edge research being undertaken in some of the most advanced laboratories in the world. In these laboratories, scientists are confronting some of the most challenging questions posed by living organisms by using a systems biology approach aided by new methods and technologies. The app is aimed at anyone interested in learning about the latest developments in biological research, but could also be used in high schools as an additional resource in advanced biology lessons.

The app is currently available in English for tablets only (both iPads and Android devices). It can be found by searching for “SystemsX” on your tablet in the app store. The download is free.

Start your journey through the human body now!
