Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Computational Biology

Model, simulate, and visualize biological and biochemical systems. Model and simulate reaction kinetics.


Most people have had headaches that prevent them from focusing on their tasks. In this virtual lab, you will study how ibuprofen can relieve headaches. Your goal is to find out what dosage works best to relieve the headache without getting any side effects.


Use built-in components to model the pain during headaches, ibuprofen and potential side effects.

A model to illustrate the effects of ibuprofen.


As long as the side effect signal is kept below 20, there will be no significant side effects. You will have no sensation of headache if the headache signal is kept below 60 and above 40.


Use the Wolfram Language to carry out custom analysis.
