Introduction:
This minisymposium aims to bring researchers in applied mathematics with diverse background to address recent advances in mathematical modeling and computational technologies for complex systems in developmental and cell biology that include (but not limited to) cell signaling pathways, cell oscillation and polarization, cancer stem cells, cancer tumor growth and cell mitosis etc. Such systems usually consist of multiple interacting components that exhibit complicated temporal and spatial dynamics with multiple time and length scales, which are extremely difficult to model and make faithful predictions. In this mini symposium, the challenges of modeling these complex systems will be discussed and, moreover, the new analytical and computational techniques to simulate these models will also be presented.
