# Modeller

A modeller is anyone that has a model of a cellular system in mind - this can be biological concepts, mathematical concepts, or a formulation that brings biological and mathematical concepts together in a model instance that can be used for simulation.

Goals

The overall goal of a modeller is to express a model in a language and toolset that is familiar to them, and to retrieve results in a form useful to their domain of interpretation. A modeller is someone who has a biological, or mathematical background, or both. The key outcome is the mathematical representation of a biological system.

Detailed goals

to model biological processes. The modeller will have an understanding of the biological entities involved, the physiological processes, and perhaps experimental data measuring aspects of these.

Examples include :

- biochemical pathways
- control of gene expression(gene regulation networks)
- ion transport, electrochemical events
- cytoskeleton structure
- cell-cell interaction - e.g. recognition, adhesion, signaling
- developmental processes
- evolution
