About this book

A true understanding of genetic and metabolic function and design is facilitated by mathematical and computational methods for analyzing biochemical systems. This hands-on reference teaches biochemists and molecular biologists the use of modern computational methods for the analysis of complex biomedical systems requiring a modest mathematical background. Computational Analysis of Biochemical Systems begins with representations of biochemical systems, provides guidelines for setting up models, details mathematical and computational methods of parameter estimation and model analysis, and connects to the modern literature with four detailed case studies. Every step is illustrated with examples and explored with accompanying PLAS software. Computational Analysis of Biochemical Systems also features over 250 exercises with about one quarter fully or partially solved.

"[...] is not only a fine, but a long overdue, book [...] this is an excellent introduction to a complex field, which I am happy to recommend to anyone."
- Darren Flower, Chemistry in Britain
