"People who wish to analyze nature without using mathematics must settle for a reduced understanding."

Richard Phillips Feynmam

Computational and theoretical modelling is essential to understand the fundamental mechanisms behind how organisms function and how diseases progress. Modelling is a process of making simplifying and idealising assumptions in order to reveal mechanisms underlying the system; it involves both applying existing modelling methodology to new biological systems and developing new theoretical formalisms, numerical schemes and simulation platforms that are appropriate to capture the dynamic and/or stochastic behaviour of specific biochemical or biological systems.
