Palmisano, Alida and Priami, Corrado (2008) From Solvable to Executable Models of Biological Systems. UNSPECIFIED.
Classical modeling approaches for biology are mainly grounded in mathematics, and specifically on ordinary differential equations (ODE). Process calculi-based conceptual and computational tools are an alternative and emergent approach. Here we focus our analysis on BlenX (a beta-binders inspired programming language) showing how it is possible to easily re-use ODE models within this framework. An example will show then the advantages of moving into a stochastic approach. This is the preliminary version of a paper that was published in Proceedings of Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB 2009), January, 2009.
