Abstract : In this course we will present some of the simulation methods most widely used to study the dynamics of biological networks. These networks may be metabolic networks, gene regulatory networks, and also the interactions between these two types of networks. We will discuss three types of approaches : the deterministic continuous simulations (ordinary dierential equation systems) discrete stochastic simulations (Gillespie method) and "entity-centered" systems (HSIM). We will see in which cases these approaches are applicable and the assumptions they imply. These simulation methods will be illustrated through two examples : the study of a model of circadian clock in the cyanobacterium and the study of oscillating systems using activators / inhibitors.
