Reviews "This book is a wonderful text for biological network analysis.
It comprehensively presents a numbers of analysis tools and their applications for understanding real biological problems. This book is a must-read for entry-level students and researchers, and a complete reference source for experts. Junker is a biologist with a strong background in bioinformatics.
His current research activities include the quantitative analysis and modeling of metabolic networks, as well as pathway databases and visual data mining.
He worked at Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York during and was appointed as project leader at the Leibniz Institute in Free Access. Summary PDF Request permissions.

The chapters all have the same format and are generally clear and helpful, and I particularly appreciated their inclusion of the computational methods available to analyze networks. As each chapter ends with a series of problems no answers are provided!
This book does have some obvious weaknesses. First, by focusing on graph models alone, it excludes differential-equation models of networks, with their rate constants and ability to consider the effects of noise. Secondly, as the case studies ignore tissue formation and the genetics systems of early development, they fail to provide anything on the anatomy ontologies and associated gene-expression databases that are the basic resources for anyone exploring the genetic basis of anatomical development.
Thirdly, the first language of most of the authors is German, and the text would have been sharper had it been sub-edited by a native speaker of English. Nevertheless, the theory and tools that the book provides will be necessary reading for those graduate students who want to plunge into the unknown depths of the molecular networks that generate tissues in embryos. They need not worry: As a quick glance on the Amazon website shows, there are now several books available on systems biology and network analysis.
This one is quite good and it will provide future anatomists with many of the tools needed for investigating how molecular networks make tissues, the holy grail of anatomy. I urge them to at least look at one of these books to see what research opportunities are becoming available. National Center for Biotechnology Information , U. Journal List J Anat v.
