CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Efficiency of amino acid utilization in simple-stomached animals and humans - a modelling approach.

The objective of this contribution is to describe how early attempts on modelling dietary nitrogen and amino acid metabolism in simple-stomached animals from a causal perspective led to a systematic approach to protein metabolism research. On the one hand, models reduce complex systems down into...
