This book provides
specific examples, across a wide range of molecular and cellular systems,
of how modeling techniques can be used to explore functionally relevant
molecular and cellular relationships. The modeling techniques covered
are applicable to cell, developmental, structural, and mathematical biology;
genetics; and computational neuroscience. The book, intended as a primer
for both theoretical and experimental biologists, is organized in two
parts: models of gene activity and models of interactions among gene products.
Modeling examples are provided at several scales for each subject. Each
chapter includes an overview of the biological system in question and
extensive references to important work in the area.
