This book introduces drug researchers to the novel computational approaches of pathway analysis and explains the existing applications that can save time and money in the drug discovery process. It covers traditional computational methods and software for pathway analysis microarray, proteomics, and metabolomics. It explains pathway reconstruction of diseases and toxic states, pathway analysis in various phases, dynamic modeling of drug responses, and more. This is a core resource for drug discovery and pharmaceutical industry researchers, chemists, and biologists and for professionals in related fields.
