Examples and How To

Modeling the Population Pharmacokinetics of Phenobarbital in Neonates

This example shows how to build a simple nonlinear mixed-effects model from clinical pharmacokinetic data.


Nonlinear Mixed-Effects Modeling

A mixed-effects model is a statistical model that incorporates both fixed effects and random effects.

Supported Methods for Parameter Estimation

SimBiology® supports a variety of optimization methods for least-squares and mixed-effects estimation problems.
