Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The regulation of shoot branching in Arabidopsis involves a complex network of interacting genes, proteins, hormones, and environmental influences. As our knowledge of the molecular biology of the individual processes increases, it becomes increasingly difficult to understand and visualise the system as a whole. We propose that techniques used in computer science for the development of complex software systems can be combined or integrated with existing computational biology techniques to produce new computer models of the shoot branching process.
