The molecular components of biochemical systems particularly the mathematical properties and their kinetic descriptions are considered. A power law method of analysis is developed, that provides a unified formalism specifically appropriate for biochemical systems, and yet mathematically tractable. The validity of this method is established, both by arguments from first principles and by direct comparison with experimental results. The methods developed are applied to several biochemical and genetic control systems.
