Biological systems consist of a large number of species with reactions which occur in multiple spatio-temporal scales. Because performing stochastic simulations of such systems are computationally expensive and prohibitive, various strategies to reduce the computational cost have been investigated, e.g. quasi-state-state approximation or hybrid methods. Also it is of interest how the interaction between different scales, e.g. between cellular and tissue scales, affects noise at the single cell level. In this mini-symposium, the focus will be on recent research reporting on advances in this area. Furthermore, the application of these methods to investigate embryonic development, cell size homeostasis and cell movement will be presented.
