Abstract

We present an application of stochastic Concurrent Constraint Programming
(sCCP) for modeling biological systems. We provide a library of sCCP
processes that can be used to describe straightforwardly biological
networks. In the meanwhile, we show that sCCP proves to be a general
and extensible framework, allowing to describe a wide class of dynamical
behaviours and kinetic laws.
