By E. Wingender

It used to be steered a few years in the past that Petri nets can be compatible to modeling metabolic networks, overcoming a few of the boundaries encountered by way of platforms applying ODEs (ordinary differential equations). a lot paintings has been performed on account that then which confirms this and demonstrates the usefulness of this idea for structures biology. Petri internet know-how is not just intuitively understood by means of scientists expert within the existence sciences, it additionally has a strong mathematical starting place and gives the necessary measure of suppleness. therefore apparently to be a really promising method of modeling organic structures. matters lined contain a precis of crucial themes, easy requisites and constraints; quantitative modeling of metabolic networks, gene regulatory and cell-cell conversation strategies; the idea that of hybrid Petri nets; modeling sign transduction pathways; internet types of metabolic regular states in addition to a couple of additional purposes of Petri web dependent modeling. The booklet is helping to demonstrate the price of Petri internet method of glossy lifestyles sciences. it's devoted to the reminiscence of Prof. Dr. Carl Adam Petri.IOS Press is a world technological know-how, technical and scientific writer of top quality books for lecturers, scientists, and execs in all fields. many of the components we submit in: -Biomedicine -Oncology -Artificial intelligence -Databases and data platforms -Maritime engineering -Nanotechnology -Geoengineering -All points of physics -E-governance -E-commerce -The wisdom financial system -Urban experiences -Arms regulate -Understanding and responding to terrorism -Medical informatics -Computer Sciences

Example text

The mapping K: P → N represents the maximal capacity of a place, if the number of tokens is limited. After the enabled transition fires, the new state of the system is M : P → N , so that M (p) = M (p) − pre(p, t) + post(t, p) ∀p ∈ P . In the example, the marking M = [0, 1, 1, 4, 1] is obtained from the marking M = [2, 5, 2, 1, 0] after transition t fires. The formal description is: m [t > M . of a substance have to react to produce how many molecules of product. The stoichiometric coefficients are described by arc weights.

In particular, they are suitable to model biochemical networks. Here, we have shown that several concepts from Petri net theory have a significance for this modelling. However, there are alternative formalisms, and it is difficult to decide which formalism is best suited. To implement the calculations on computer, one usually translates Petri nets into matrices. So one may argue that the networks could be modelled by matrices from the very beginning. Indeed, Petri nets have the advantage to provide a means of visualisation.

Due to the sufficient amount of NAD + , GAPDH fires with production of the necessary NADH, which gives GPDH the possibility to fire. Also if NAD + is deficient, but GA3P is sufficient, TPI2 converts GA3P into DHAPg, GPDH fires and produces the required NAD + . Taking into account almost only structural properties of the given network, especially the presence of traps, we could evaluate the role of TPI in glycolysis and glycerol production. In the next section an example taken from nucleotide metabolism will be used to illustrate the notions presented above.
