              PUBLIC DOMAIN PROGRAM DYNAFIT AVAILABLE

DynaFit is a program for simulation and least-squares
fitting of biochemical kinetic data.  The user enters
the reaction mechanism symbolically, such as this:

; "Slow, tight" inhibition of HIV proteinase
                                            
[mechanism]                                 
   E + S <==> ES     :     k       ks       
   ES ---> E + P     :     kr               
   E + I <==> EI     :     k1      k2       
   EI <==> EJ        :     k3      k4       

The machine then derives the underlying system of 
differential equations (to compute the time-course of
the reaction) or algebraic equations (to compute the 
composision at equilibrium).

                                        TEST PROBLEMS

The program should be downloaded along with a set of
test examples, all of them based on real experimental
mostly from biochemical kinetics, but the same methods
can be used for other areas of chemistry and biology.

                                              REVIEWS

A reviewer had this to say about DynaFit: "If you do any 
kind of kinetic data analysis as part of your research 
program, be sure to download DynaFit from the BioKin Web 
site."  (HMS Beagle Newsletter "Software Alert", volume
1997 No. 9).
