About this book

Illustrates the premise that examination of the kinetics of biological processes provides valuable information on the mechanisms underlying these processes.

...very valuable... Ken Howard, British Society for Developmental Biology Newsletter "...a useful introduction to an important branch of mathematical biology and a worthy addition to the Cambridge Studies in Mathematical Biology series." A. Abakuks, Biometrics "...a first rate introduction to, or review of, methods for analyzing biological kinetic data...can be read by either mathematically or biochemically trained scientists. Both groups will gain a better understanding of the other's work." Carla Wofsy, Mathematical Biosciences
