On Friday I returned from giving a talk at the Annual Workshop on Modelling of Complex Biological Systems in the Context of Genomics in Montpellier. Personal highlights (with links to relevant material) were:
Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz; Lindenmayer vs. D'Arcy Thompson; A Comparison of Two Approaches for Modelling Plant Development and Structure. See the Algorithmic Botany page.
Andreas Wagner; Evolution and Evolvability of Gene Networks. See Robustness and Evolvability in Living Systems
Jorg Stelling; Robustness and Cellular Design Principles. See this Cell article.
