There are several levels of uncertainty involved in modelling biochemical systems. For example, the experimental data usually contains considerable amount of observation errors, and there may be alternative hypotheses about the processes involved in studied phenomena. The methods of Bayesian inference provide a consistent framework for modelling and predicting in uncertain conditions. We present a software package for applying Bayesian inferential methodology to problems in Systems Biology. This software package is named BioBayes, and it provides a framework for parameter estimation and evidential hypotheses testing over models of biochemical systems defined using ordinary differential equations. The package is available from The software is based on modular architecture and allows plugging-in third party methods and extensions.

Thanks for the well structured content. We were advised to watch this lecture at the university, I now have to prepare an essay on the methods of Bayesian inference and I wanted to do this with the help of they have excellent reviews for their work, but I also wanted to better understand myself and am glad that I learned so much useful information. This will help me before defending my work with my professor.

This is definitely a great article. Thank you so much for taking the time to detail all of this for all of us. It was a great guide!

Please take a lecture in which thorouly explain all the parts of the CPU and other information, so we get authentic information, just like your other lectures.
