Computational methods are playing an ever increasing role in cell biology.  This volume of Methods in Cell Biology focuses on Computational Methods in Cell Biology and consists of two parts: (1) data extraction and analysis to distill models and mechanisms, and (2) developing and simulating models to make predictions and testable hypotheses. 

Key Features

  • Focuses on computational methods in cell biology
  • Split into 2 parts--data extraction and analysis to distill models and mechanisms, and developing and simulating models to make predictions and testable hypotheses
  • Emphasizes the intimate and necessary connection with interpreting experimental data and proposing the next hypothesis and experiment


Researchers and students in cell, molecular and developmental biology
