The research has been developed by the Amaral Lab for Complex Systems and Systems Biology at Northwestern headed by Drs. Luis Amaral and Jordi Duch. Dr. Amaral has been awarded the prestigious Early Career Scientist fellowship by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), an award extended only to 50 most promising scientists, for his work on understanding the dynamics of complex systems.

In June 2010, the peer-reviewed journal PLoS One published the research to the great interest of the scientific community and public alike.
