Computational yeast systems biology: a case study for the MAP kinase cascade.

Author information

  • 1Theoretical Biophysics, Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin, Berlin, Germany.


Cellular networks and processes can be mathematically described and analyzed in various ways. Here, the case example of a MAP kinase (MAPK) cascade is used to detail steps in the formulation of a system of ordinary differential equations governing the temporal behavior of a signal transduction pathway after stimulation. Different analysis methods for the model are explained and demonstrated, such as stoichiometric analysis, sensitivity analysis, or studying the effect of deletions and protein overexpression. Finally, a perspective on standards concerning modeling in systems biology is given.
