The multi-disciplinary field of systems biology is devoted to the study of the relationships between various parts of a biological system. In this context, given the high-throughput nature of current biological data, computational models play a vital role to better and holistically understand biological processes. Furthermore, to deal with the large and heterogenous number of computational tools already developed to support the multi-step processing pipeline and the multi-scale nature of biological complexity, standardized formats are required to improve tools cooperation and minimize data-translation errors.
In this Special Issue we welcome unpublished work pertaining to Systems Biology, Systems Medicine, and, in particular, to their underlying modeling formalisms and simulation software. We aim at the concept of "Software supporting Life Scientists", which eventually results in the transition of research-oriented simulation software into the domain of Systems Biology and Systems Medicine.
This special issue seeks to provide an opportunity for researchers to present their original contributions on the problem of modeling complex biological systems. The special issue topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Multilevel, multiscale, and qualitative modeling
Analysis of metabolic, protein-protein interaction, regulatory, and signaling networks
