Science Daily: Cancer and Computational Biology

Science Daily has a write up on a new paper that emphasize the importance of mathematical modeling of cancer cells. The paper, On the Role of Cell Signaling Models in Cancer Research, seeks to "emphasize the role and importance of the careful mathematical/computational modeling of signaling networks for the understanding of aberrant signaling in cancer and for the development of targeted therapies".

From ScienceDaily

Biology exists in a physical world. That's a fact cancer researchers are beginning to recognize as they look to include concepts of physics and mathematics in their efforts to understand how cancer develops -- and how to stop it.
