Abstract : The spatiotemporal expression of genes in an organism is determined by regulatory systems that involve a large number of genes connected through a complex network of interactions. As an intuitive understanding of the behavior of these systems is hard to obtain, computer tools for the modeling and simulation of genetic regulatory networks will be indispensable. This report reviews formalisms that have been employed in mathematical biology and bioinformatics to describe genetic regulatory systems, in particular directed graphs, Bayesian networks, ordinary and partial differential equations, stochastic equations, Boolean networks and their generalizations, qualitative differential equations, and rule-based formalisms. In addition, the report discusses how these formalisms have been used in the modeling and simulation of regulatory systems.
