Advantages of Petri-Net Modeling and Simulation for Biological Networks

Ralf Hofestädt
Abstract—During the last 20 years Petri-Nets have attracted more and more attention to help to model and simulate biological networks. To model the identified features of cellular processing it was necessary to extend the basic definition of Petri-Nets. Regarding the published papers, it seems clear that hybrid functional Petri-Nets are the adequate method to model complex biological networks today. Furthermore, different higher Petri-Nets are available to realize the adequate modeling of cellular processes. This paper will present the advantages of Petri-Nets for modeling and simulation of biological networks.

Index Terms—Biological networks, modeling, Petri-Nets, simulation.
