umm, maybe. To the same extent as biologist's ability to write a simplest
kinetic or equilibrium equation.

Sure. Few of them.
1. Any modern spreadsheet program (Excel, Lotus) that your lab owns has
*everything* you need (provided that you can do the above).
2. Similar to 1). Many excellent "scientific graphics" programs have the
same abilities *plus* they are fast and produce publication-quality
3. There is a nice very basic program called "Kinetic". Does pretty good
job. Freeware. Huge disadvantage - no way to save entered data. I can
send it to you if you wish.
