This talk presents a programming language for designing and simulating computer models of biological systems. The language is based on a computational formalism known as the pi-calculus, and the simulation algorithm is based on standard kinetic theory of physical chemistry. The language will first be presented using a simple graphical notation, which will subsequently be used to model and simulate some intriguing biological systems, including a genetic oscillator and an immune system pathway. One of the benefits of the language is its scalability: large models of biological systems can be programmed from simple components in a modular fashion.

This talk is part of the Computational and Systems Biology series.
