BEST-KIT is an efficient and user-friendly "biochemical engineering system analyzing tool-kit" integrated the following key modules: 1) mathematical modeling and editing of reaction-scheme, 2) automatic derivation of differential equations, 3) numerical calculation, 4) nonlinear optimization, 5) visualization, 6) retrieve the information on reaction mechanism and kinetic parameters from data-base of metabolic pathways. The users of this simulator are assumed to be unfamiliar with computer technology and with computer programming. The integrated interface (UNIX version) is based on Xlib, XToolkit and OSF/Motif Widget.
