One of the ambitions of 'crop systems biology' is to combine information from molecular biology with a broader view of plant development and growth. In the context of modeling, this calls for a multiscale perspective that focuses on the interplay between cellular and macroscopic studies. With this in mind, in this review we aim to draw attention to a panel of approaches that were developed in the context of systems biology and are used for analyzing and describing the behavior of cellular networks. Ultimately, insights obtained from these methods can be exploited to refine the description of plant processes, leading to integrated plant-cellular models.
