Biochemical systems are commonly modelled by systems of ordinary differentialequations (ODEs). A particular class of such models called S-systems have recently gained popu-larity in biochemical system modelling. The parameters of an S-system are usually estimated fromtime-course profiles. However, finding these estimates is a difficult computational problem.Moreover, although several methods have been recently proposed to solve this problem for idealprofiles, relatively little progress has been reported for noisy profiles. We describe a specialfeature of a Newton-flow optimisation problem associated with S-system parameter estimation.This enables us to significantly reduce the search space, and also lends itself to parameter esti-mation for noisy data. We illustrate the applicability of our method by applying it to noisy time-course data synthetically produced from previously published 4- and 30-dimensional S-systems.In addition, we propose an extension of our method that allows the detection of network topologiesfor small S-systems. We introduce a new method for estimating S-system parameters from time-course profiles. We show that the performance of this method compares favorably with competingmethods for ideal profiles, and that it also allows the determination of parameters for noisy profiles.
