Dr. Brian Munsky announces book launch

Brian Munsky (Asst. Prof., CBE) is excited to announce the recent publication of “Quantitative Biology – Theory, Computational Methods, and Models.”  The textbook culminates 12 years’ experience teaching quantitative modeling of biological processes at the annual q-bio Summer School by editors Brian Munsky, William S. Hlavacek (Los Alamos National Laboratory) and Lev S. Tsimring (UC San Diego). The book was driven by a young and enthusiastic community of former q-bio Summer School students and lecturers, who contributed thirty chapters covering basic theoretical concepts, descriptions of modern computing methods, and detailed examples of quantitative biological investigations. The textbook includes contributions by members of the US National Academy of Science (Prof. Herbert Levine, Rice University) and the National Academies of Science Institute of Medicine (Prof. Michael Savageau, UC Davis) as well as two chapters authored by CSU students Zachary Fox (Ph.D student, SBME), Lisa Weber (Ph.D Student, CBE), and William Raymond (2017 B.S. Grad, CBE/BIOM). The 728-page B&W textbook has been published by MIT Press, and is available for online purchase.”
