Quantitative Models of Mammalian Cell Signaling Pathways (PowerPoint Slides)

Ravi Iyengar*

Department of Pharmacology and Systems Therapeutics, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY 10029, USA.


Slides are provided for a class describing mathematical modeling of mammalian signaling pathways and part of the course �Cell Signaling Systems: A Course for Graduate Students.� The slides begin with an overview of why mathematical modeling is important, describe the different types of models and their appropriate application, and then provide several examples of how models were applied to ask specific questions and develop testable hypotheses about signaling networks.
