Demin (biophysics, Moscow State U., Russia) and Goryanin (computational systems biology, U. of Edinburgh, Scotland) consider kinetic modeling as one of the major pillars for the future development of systems biology. Their text provides an overview of the method of kinetic modeling, including practical applications. Coverage includes an historical overview of knowledge management and mathematical modeling in biology, the basic biological cellular network concepts in the context of cellular functioning, explanation of the Edinburgh Pathway Editor (EPE) software package for pathway visualization and illustration, construction and verification of kinetic models, the main features and user interface of DBSolve, modeling of individual enzymes and transporters, pathways kinetic modeling, modeling of mitochondrial energy metabolism, and application of the kinetic modeling approach to biotechnology and biomedicine. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the EPE software, DBSolve installation, and pathway diagrams from the book.
