Stochastic modeling is becoming increasingly popular in biological sciences. The ability to account for intrinsic fluctuations and uncertainty in experimental outcomes has been an advantage of stochastic methods. The application of stochastic tools has proven to be tremendously useful in analyzing biological systems. The objective of this 2-part mini-symposium is to highlight recent advances in biochemical reaction networks -- both at the ecological and the molecular scales. The sessions will cover a wide range of themes (including applications and techniques) giving a general overview of the field. Specific topics include new asymptotic results/approximations, multiscale methods and statistical inference algorithms for those biological systems and applications to phylogenetics and epidemiology. Special focus will be on methods that can be translated into usable tools from a practical perspective.
