This session is organized in honor of the late Professor Ching-Shan Chou, who had performed very valuable research works on computational models for developmental and cell biology. Cell biology aims to study the structure, function, and development of cells. Since the muli-scale cell systems usually include complex regulation controls, computational modeling becomes an essential tool in predicting cell and tissue development under multilevel regulations. This mini-symposium will highlight recent computational approaches applied in cell and developmental biology. The research topics will include single-cell polarity, tissue pattern formation, and colony formation.
