Stochastic Simulation as an Effective Cell Analysis Tool
Stochastic Simulation is today a powerful tool to foresee possible dynamics of strict subsets of the real world. In recent years, it has been successfully employed in simulating cell dynamics with the aim of discovering exogenic quantities of chemicals able to deflect typical diseased simulation paths in healthy ones. This paper gives a large overview of the stochastic simulation environment and offers an example of a possible use of it on a pathway triggered by DNA damage.
