Overview

Up to the last decade or so, most general modeling approaches to the study of molecular components of biological responses have required significant amount of computer time, expertise, and resources, as well as highly specialized and often custom-written programs. With Biomedical Applications of Computer Modeling you don't have to be a computer scientist to learn valuable modeling techniques.
The book represents the first single-volume book that describes general approaches to computer modeling as they apply to the biomedical professions, particularly in the realms of pharmacology and biochemistry. Bringing together contributions from researchers with hands-on expertise, the book is loaded with examples, and it also encompasses different types of computer modeling approaches. In fact, the text supports each modeling approach with clinical examples. It thereby provides a convenient source of readily applicable modeling information. In addition, the book offers easy-to-follow information and presents it in a how-to manner that minimizes the use of mathematical jargon.
Biomedical Applications of Computer Modeling includes chapters on equilibrium modeling, dynamic/kinetic modeling, and stochastic modeling, as well as overviews of the application of models to experimental data. With the ubiquitous presence of desktops and notebook computers in biomedical environments, Biomedical Applications of Computer Modeling provides you with an unprecedented means for readily addressing data analysis or computer modeling problems.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Now that computers and modelling software have become as ubiquitous and cheap in the biomedical environment as, say, ashtrays were a few decades ago, experienced researchers decided it was time to update the literature on modelling to fit the new situation. With minimal mathematical jargon, they demonstrate how to use the common software packages to create models that provide insight into biological mechanisms, and how to design better experiments, describing a range of different approaches to computer modeling and supporting each with practical examples.
