Traditionally, biological systems are modelled by deterministic models. However, biochemical reacting systems which involve small number of molecules of certain species may not be adequately modelled by a deterministic differential equations. Stochastic models, in form of jump processes or stochastic differential equations, have been proposed instead for analyzing such systems(Gillespie1976, Gillespie 1977).

Aim of this project is to gain some insight of the stochastic behavior in biochemical systems and their comparison to the deterministic models in performing parameter inference and model selection.
