Abstract. Along with the advances in experimental techniques comes a transformation of life science into a highly quantitative discipline. While statistics and bioinformatics are widely used for data analysis, applied mathematics is more and more acknowledged as an equal contributor in the quest to understand the functional interactions of cellular components, organs and systems. Visions of this interdisciplinary approach include personalized medicine, computer designed drugs or large scale biofuel usage. With life being a dynamic process, modelling and simulation of biological systems often involves time-dependent differential equations and brings along a diversity of inverse problems such as inference of parameters in biochemical reaction networks or the manipulation of qualitative network behaviour for the return from diseased to healthy states.
