This advanced textbook is tailored to the needs of introductory course in Systems Biology. It has a companion website with solutions to questions in the book and several additional extensive working models. This book is related to the very successful previous title "Systems Biology in Practice" and has incorporated the feedback and suggestions from many lecturers worldwide. This book addresses biologists as well as engineers and computer scientists. The interdisciplinary team of acclaimed authors worked closely together to ensure a comprehensive coverage with no overlaps in a homogenous and compelling style.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

This book is an exception. It is a heavy weight but exceptionally well written given it came from a team.
It does a good job on reactions and reaction rates and develops a simple matrix model which is useful. There are times when the pedagogy could be improved but that is a nit. For example the rate equations deal with concentrations of the constituents and for someone approaching this for the first time there is bit an aside comment. For those seeing this as an added text there is no confusion.
There are many real world models worked through so that the reader can see how to apply this.
The level of the mathematics is just right, it is detailed to the point of having reliance on the result but not to the extreme that you lose the biology.
The writing style is superb and one can sit down and use it as a good read, no struggling on where they got something from.
I would have liked to see them work through some cancer pathway models, PTEN and c-MYC, but that is a wish list item.
Overall, this is one of the best if not the best I have seen. There is the book by System Modeling in Cellular Biology: From Concepts to Nuts and Bolts (Bradford Books) which is also exceptionally good, but the Szallasi book shows the signs of many minds. This book is a single presentation, often difficult to do.
I found the book very good Moreover it covers all aspects of systems biology
However if you are starting to read about this subject may be you may need
a more simple book
It says that authors worked "closely together to ensure a comprehensive coverage of the topic in a fluent and compelling style". My impression was completely opposite. There is no link between individual chapters at all. Authors tried to cover so many topics, that the result was very brief and sporadic biological topics and at the same time superficial mathematics lacking proper introductions, explanations and coverage. How authors arrive to particular equation and why they are using it for particular biological model is not clear at all. Be sure, in order to understand most of the mathematics presented within you need to have a very solid background built previously and if you have this solid background already, then I am in doubt you will find something useful inside. It is just a sparse collection of various topics without proper focus and discussion.
Is there something positive about the book? I don't know, hard to say, maybe 17.5 section "Tools Compendium", which provides overview of Internet modeling tools.
Would I recommend this book for my friend or colleague? The answer is no.
Thank you for reading,
