About this book

Providing a comprehensive overview of traditional and modern techniques in computational systems biology, Kinetic Modelling in Systems Biology offers a systematic presentation of the principles and algorithms guiding this process. Combining mathematical theory with practical applications, the book demonstrates how to integrate techniques that enable the collection, modeling, simulation, analysis, and hypothesis of temporal data. With an accompanying CD-ROM of tables, illustrations, and other supporting materials, this text presents a complete understanding of the fundamental principles and basic techniques for mathematical modeling, data analysis, and visualization.

!This book will help the reader to understand the kinetic modeling approach, apply it to solve real-life problems, and give the opportunity to think about future challenges. It also illustrates how to apply the principles of kinetic modeling to perform various functions. ! --ISCB News #49, June 2010
