"This book teaches biochemists and molecular biologists in a hands-on fashion the use of modern computational methods for the analysis of complex biomedical systems; a modest mathematical background will suffice. The book begins with representations of biochemical systems, provides guidelines for setting up models, discusses in detail mathematical and computational methods of parameter estimation and model analysis, and ultimately connects to the modern literature with four detailed case studies. Every step is illustrated with examples and exercises, and is explored with the accompanying software, PLAS. A dedicated Web site featuring color illustrations, further exercises, research news, as well as resources and links also accompanies this book."--BOOK JACKET.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I found the introduction to this book absolutely fascinating...I enjoyed this book enormously. Having had to learn all this stuff on my own, I was happy to see it all (and more!) outlined in a single source. This book is unique in many ways...I highly recommend the book to scientists interested in dynamics/kinetics of complex systems." Journal of Food Biochemistry
