Abstract

The workshop is focused at the intersection of three areas: molecular signaling (hormonal control and exchange of signaling molecules), network modeling (mathematical representation of biological feedback mechanisms), and biomechanical concepts (physical and mechanical analysis of force driven deformation or cells and tissues). The workshop will provide a forum for mathematicians, physicists and engineers to develop, exchange and challenge novel approaches to simulate these complex biological processes in integrated manner. The long term goal is to improve our understanding of plant growth, pattern formation and motion.
