The biological data regarding the signalling pathways often consider single pathways or a small number of them. We propose a methodology for composing this kind of data in a coherent framework, in order to be able to investigate a bigger number of signalling pathways. We specify a biological system by means of a set of stoichiometric-like equations resembling the essential features of molecular interactions. We represent these equations by a timed concurrent constraint (ntcc) language, which can deal with partial information and the time for a reaction to occur. We describe a freely available prototypical implementation of our framework.

Abstract

The biological data regarding the signalling pathways often consider single pathways or a small number of them. We propose a methodology for composing this kind of data in a coherent framework, in order to be able to investigate a bigger number of signalling pathways. We specify a biological system by means of a set of stoichiometric-like equations resembling the essential features of molecular interactions. We represent these equations by a timed concurrent constraint (ntcc) language, which can deal with partial information and the time for a reaction to occur. We describe a freely available prototypical implementation of our framework.
