Overview

The LNCS journal Transactions on Computational Systems Biology is devoted to inter- and multidisciplinary research in the fields of computer science and life sciences and supports a paradigmatic shift in the techniques from computer and information science to cope with the new challenges arising from the systems oriented point of view of biological phenomena.

This special issue on Computational Models for Cell Processes is based on a workshop with the same name that took place in Turku, Finland, on May 27, 2008. The accepted papers, which have passed through a separate peer-review process, span an interesting mix of approaches to systems biology, ranging from quantitative to qualitative techniques, from continuous to discrete mathematics, from deterministic to shastic methods, and from computational models for biology to computing paradigms inspired by biology. Also included in this issue are three regular submissions dealing with the relationship between ODEs and shastic concurrent constraint programming, with the equilibrium points of genetic regulatory networks, and with probability models describing how epigenetic context affects gene expression and organismal development.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

“It is a multidisciplinary collection of research papers, by researchers, for researchers. The papers target specialists in particular formalisms. … papers were presented at a satellite workshop of the 15th International Symposium on Formal Methods at Turku, in 2008. The goal of the research is to supplement ‘wetlab’ science (in vitro or in vivo) by in silico or in numero studies. … In conclusion, this book is for specialists … .” (Richard Botting, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2010)
