technical report From Solvable to Executable Models of Biological Systems


Abstract

Classical modeling approaches for biology are mainly ground-ed in mathematics, and specifically on ordinary differential equations (ODE). Process calculi-based conceptual and computational tools are an alter- native and emergent approach. Here we focus our analysis on BlenX (a beta-binders inspired programming language) showing how it is possi- ble to easily re-use ODE models within this framework. An example will show then the advantages of moving into a stochastic approach.
