Modelling molecular evolution with process algebras

Back
Abstract:
Recent years have witnessed an increasing interest in addressing evolutionary questions using tools and techniques of systems biology. The underlying assumption is that the executable nature of systems biology models can be used to study complex genotype-phenotype relationships, abstracted from by traditional mathematical frameworks for evolutionary biology. In this talk, I will present a generic framework for evolutionary systems biology based on process algebras, a mathematical formalism for modelling networks of interacting entities, and demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of this approach with a case study of a MAPK signalling cascade.
