EPSRC-funded Workshop

Workshop on Indistinguishability and Model Discrimination in Systems Biology

Tuesday 29 September 2009

University of Warwick

As part of an EPSRC-funded grant on Indistinguishability analysis for model discrimination in Systems Biology: A Feasibility Study applied to Bacterial Peptidoglycan Biosynthesis a team from the School of Engineering, Biological Sciences and Chemistry held a one day workshop on the applicability of (structural) identifiability and indistinguishability to mechanism discrimination and identification in Systems Biology.
