Guidelines for Model Implementation Assignments tr.v. im·ple·ment·ed, im·ple·ment·ing, im·ple·ments (-m nt ) To put into practical effect; carry out: implement the new procedures. The purpose of these exercises is twofold: 1) to gain experience in quickly implementing numerical simulations of simple kinetic models; and 2) to examine biomolecular kinetic phenomena by computational experimentation. You should implement a MATLAB version of the mathematical model in the indicated paper, and validate that your implementation is correct by reproducing some of the results presented in that paper. Note that we do not expect you to reproduce every single data point in the paper; rather, it is left to your judgment to identify the key, most discriminating tests to assure that you’ve correctly implemented the model. You should then examine the behavior of the system by computational experiments. For example, alter, add, or subtract a particular step in the underlying mechanism and determine the consequences.
