MATLAB Code. Three MATLAB files for performing computational modeling of the cell cycle. “tyson.m” uses Euler’s method to solve the system of ODEs; “tyson_ode.m”, is an incomplete program that sets up a solution using MATLAB’s solvers; and “dydt_tyson.m” is an incomplete function that is called by “tyson_ode.m”. These three files are used as part of the student assignment.
