Contributors from computer science, bioinformatics, and other disciplines survey the potential of Petri nets (not permeable versions of Petri dishes, but something entirely different) to model complex biological processes at a degree of granularity that is fine enough to be accurate yet gross enough to be practical. Among the topics are the topological analysis of metabolic networks based on Petri net theory, Petri nets for the steady-state analysis of metabolic systems, ontology-based standardizations of Petri net modeling for signaling pathways, analyzing stationary states of a gene regulatory network using Petri nets, the impact of delays and noise on dopamine signal transduction, and modeling the molecular interactions in the flower development network of Arabidopsis thaliana.
