Johnson, Colin G. and McIntyre, Emmet and Gullick, William J. (2008) Computational and Mathematical Modelling of the EGF Receptor System. In: Hayley, J.D. and Gullick, William J., eds. EGFR Signaling Networks in Cancer Therapy. Cancer Drug Discovery & Development . Humana Press, USA, pp. 209-220. ISBN 978-1-58829-948-2. (doi:10.1007/978-1-59745-356-1_15) (KAR id:7272)


This chapter gives an overview of computational and mathematical modelling of the EGF receptor system. It begins with a survey of motivations for producing such models, then describes the main approaches that are taken to carrying out such modelling, viz. differential equations and individual-based modelling. Finally, a number of projects that applying modelling and simulation techniques to various aspects of the EGF receptor system are described.
