Deterministic and Stochastic Methods for Biochemical Reaction Systems

** Abastract:**
The dynamics of biochemical reaction systems can be modeled either
deterministically or stochastically. Typically, the equations governing
the dynamics of these models are quite complex. Further, there is
oftentimes little knowledge about the exact values of the different
system parameters, and, worse still, these system parameter values may
vary from cell to cell. However, the network structure of a given system
induces the corresponding equations (up to parameter values) governing
its dynamics. I will show in this talk how this fact may be exploited to
infer qualitative properties of large classes of biochemical systems
and, most importantly, to learn which properties are independent of the
details of the system parameters. I will give results for both
stochastically and deterministically modeled systems. I will also
discuss some recent work on numerical methods for the simulation of
sample paths for stochastically modeled systems. The use of such
methods is
quickly increasing throughout the biology and biochemistry
communities and therefore warrants more careful study.
