more than 50 years ago (1943) Britton Chance published simulations done
with a mechanical differential analyzer (they were actually on one isolated
enzyme not a pathway), but Athel is right,this was one isolated study and
it all began around 1960 with Chance Garfinkel and Hess. I would be very
interested in finding out about *any* computer simulation in biochemistry 60
years ago :)
