Abstract : Work was begun on a computer system which would accommodate both equilibrium and kinetic computations in the same program. It would also allow the user to write (ordinary nonlinear) differential equations and FORTRAN programs as required for the simulation of his biochemical or physiological problem. This system would therefore allow, in principle, for the iterative calculations required to simulate, for example, equilibrium in each of several compartments, and at the same time, the differential equations of mass and energy transport among compartments. This system, called BIOMOD, is now running. At this Conference a report is given on BIOMOD using a 20-minute movie to show its main characteristics.
