Deciphering the Dynamics of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition and Cancer Stem Cells in Tumor Progression
These models highlight the insights gained via mathematical modeling approaches and emphasizes that the connections between hybrid E/M phenotype(s) and stemness can be explained by analyzing underlying regulatory circuits.
Stochastic stem cell models with mutation: A comparison of asymmetric and symmetric divisions.
How to Characterize Stem Cells? Contributions from Mathematical Modeling
Mathematical models coupled with tools of parameter estimation and model selection provide quantitative insights into stem cell properties and their regulation that help to understand experimentally inaccessible processes occurring in regeneration, aging, and cancer.
Fuzzy Neural Network Model for Rules Generating of the Objects State Determining in Uncertainty 1
The research results show that the classifying ability of fuzzy rules is not inferior to other classification methods in accuracy and the inferencing algorithm based on the rules makes it possible to successfully perform the classification in the absence of some of the source data.


Mathematical modelling of plasticity and phenotype switching in cancer cell populations.
Dynamics between Cancer Cell Subpopulations Reveals a Model Coordinating with Both Hierarchical and Stochastic Concepts
Analysis demonstrated that the experimental detectable equilibrium CSC proportion can be achieved only when the stochastic transitions from NSCCs to CSCs occur, indicating that tumor heterogeneity may exist in a model coordinating with both the CSC and the stoChastic concepts.

Overshoot during phenotypic switching of cancer cell populations
It is shown that the population dynamics of cancer cells is associated with a complex miRNA network regulating the Wnt and PI3K pathways, which means phenotypic switching is not stochastic, but is tightly regulated by the balance between positive and negative cells in the population.
Nonequilibrium Population Dynamics of Phenotype Conversion of Cancer Cells
A mathematical framework of population dynamics that considers both distinctive growth rates and intercellular transitions between cancer cell populations showed that both growth and transition influence the ratio of cancer cell subpopulations but the latter is more significant.
Effect of Dedifferentiation on Time to Mutation Acquisition in Stem Cell-Driven Cancers
Dedifferentiation may play an important role in carcinogenesis, depending on how stem cell homeostasis is maintained, and the common modeling assumption of constant stem cell population size may not be adequate, and further progress in understanding carcinogenesis demands a more detailed mechanistic understanding of stem cellHomeostasis.
