Control Theory and Systems Biology

Pablo A. Iglesias and Brian P. Ingalls


Issues of regulation and control are central to the study of biological and biochemical systems. Thus it is not surprising that the tools of feedback control theory—engineering techniques developed to design and analyze self-regulating systems—have proven useful in the study of these biological mechanisms. Such interdisciplinary work requires knowledge of the results, tools, and techniques of another discipline, as well as an understanding of the culture of an unfamiliar research community. This book attempts to bridge the gap between disciplines by presenting applications of systems and contr ... More

Keywords: biochemical systems, feedback control theory, self-regulating systems, biological mechanisms, cell biology, equation-based modeling, modeling frameworks, dynamic behavior, modularity, stoichiometry
