Full Description
This easy-to-follow text serves as a valuable introduction to contemporary cell biology and offers insight into the key research directions in the field. It begins with an overview of existing tools for finding, designing and investigating metabolic, genetic, signalling and other network databases. It then introduces Cell Illustrator 3.0, a software tool for biological pathway modelling and simulation. In-depth discussion is given to how this tool can be used for creating, analysing and simulating models, explicating and testing current understanding of basic biological processes.Features: Provides many learning aids, such as detailed examples throughout; exercises and solutions; Discusses the computational functionalities required for Systems Biology.Written for undergraduates this reader-friendly introduction to the field of Systems Biology offers insight and teaches sound expertise in the subject.
