Book Description

This unique text explores the use of innovative modeling techniques in effecting a better understanding of complex diseases such as AIDS and cancer. From a way of representing the computational properties of protein-folding problems to computer simulation of bimodal neurons and networks, Computer Modeling and Simulations of Complex Biological Systems examines several modeling methodologies and integrates them across a variety of disciplines. This interdisciplinary approach suggests new ways to solve complex problems pertaining to biological systems. Written in clear and simple terms appropriate for both the novice and the experienced researcher, the book presents a step-by-step approach to the subject and includes numerous examples that explain the concepts presented in the text.
