Morphogenesis and growth control are fundamental questions to study in developmental biology. Since the past few decades, mathematical modeling has been introduced into this area to understand the mechanisms and principles underlying the tissue growth and morphogenesis. Due to the fast development on both theoretical and computational sides, nowadays a variety of multiscale modeling frameworks have been developed and widely used to understand a variety of biological systems. They offer remarkable benefits to the research community, and lead to some major trends in modern multiscale modeling research, which include but are not limited to: 1) development of computational models for complex biological systems using high performance computing, and 2) novel methods of integrating theories with different kinds of large biological data sets. This minisymposium tries to bring researchers in this field together to exchange ideas about recently developed state-of-the-art models, methods and theories in this area emphasizing multiscale modeling and data-driven approaches and explore collaborations.
