An Introduction to Systems Biology : Design Principles of Biological Circuits Paperback
Part of the Chapman & Hall/CRC Mathematical and Computational Biology series
Thorough and accessible, this book presents the design principles of biological systems, and highlights the recurring circuit elements that make up biological networks.
It provides a simple mathematical framework which can be used to understand and even design biological circuits.
The textavoids specialist terms, focusing instead on several well-studied biological systems that concisely demonstrate key principles. An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits builds a solid foundation for the intuitive understanding of general principles.
It encourages the reader to ask why a system is designed in a particular way and then proceeds to answer with simplified models.
