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.
