Systems Biology: A Textbook
Publication date: September 2011
Digital Book format: ePub (Adobe DRM)
"... Boxed summaries at the start of each subchapter and examples illustrated throughout the book highlight the key points and provide clarity. Most chapters conclude with a short problem set, summarising the basic concepts and prompting further thought. This clear text is a useful starting point for anyone aspiring to solve a biological question using systems biology approaches."
Systems biology is a highly topical discipline at the intersection of biochemistry, cell biology, computer science, and systems engineering.
This course book in systems biology is tailored to the needs of advanced students of biology, engineering, and computer science. It has a companion website with solutions to questions in the book, additional chapters, and computer implementations of systems biology models.
The book is a follow-up of the very successful Systems Biology in Practice and incorporates the feedback and suggestions of many lecturers worldwide.
The interdisciplinary team of acclaimed authors have worked closely together to ensure a comprehensive coverage of the topic in a fluent and compelling style.
