Biochemical Systems Theory

Biochemical systems theory is a mathematical modelling framework for biochemical systems, based on ordinary differential equations (ODE), in which biochemical processes are represented using power-law expansions in the variables of the system.

This framework, which became known as Biochemical Systems Theory, has been developed since the 1960s by Michael Savageau and others for the systems analysis of biochemical processes. According to Cornish-Bowden (2007) they "regarded this as a general theory of metabolic control, which includes both metabolic control analysis and flux-oriented theory as special cases".

Famous quotes containing the words theory and/or systems:

    No theory is good unless it permits, not rest, but the greatest work. No theory is good except on condition that one use it to go on beyond.
    André Gide (1869–1951)

    Our little systems have their day;
    They have their day and cease to be:
    They are but broken lights of thee,
    And thou, O Lord, art more than they.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
