Personalised medicine is one of the challenges of systems biology. If some clinical trials have already explored the possibility to treat patients individually based on their genomic profiles, there are more and more attempts to use mathematical models as an aid to select therapies in the clinics. The purpose of these models is to describe, understand and predict cellular responses from a molecular perspective. They serve to explain complex biological phenomena, provide predictions that can be tested experimentally, and formulate plausible scenarios of a complex biological behaviour when intuition is not sufficient anymore.
