A fundamental unsolved problem in biology is understanding how a living cell emerges from the multitude of molecular components. Because cellular processes are highly complex and occur at a mesoscale that is difficult to address by direct measurement of all components, modeling will play a central role in revealing the origins of cell structure and function. Cellular modeling poses major challenges in terms of selecting the appropriate level of abstraction, scale, and type of model. While ODE models have long played a pivotal role, other types of models such as rule-based, network, and multi-scale models also represent powerful approaches. This workshop will provide a forum to discuss how we can apply various types of modeling, at different levels of spatial scale and different levels of detail, from fine to coarse grained, to tackle the challenges that cell biology poses.
