Synchronized oscillations play an important role in many biological systems. In recent years, much work has been done on oscillating biomolecular systems, both experimentally and theoretically. A better insight into oscillation mechanisms, coupling strategies and related biological processes is gained by quantitative analysis. Here we summarized some of recent work on oscillation and synchronization in biological systems and reviewed the basic concepts of synchronization of coupled oscillators and dynamics on complex networks.
