Abstract

The fusion of empirical science with large-scale computing platforms has allowed rapid advances in our ability to model physiological and pathophysiological processes in silico. In this week's issue of Science Translational Medicine, Tran et al. present a simple framework for the quantitative modeling of oncogene addiction that provides mechanistic insights into tumor biology.
