The normal and abnormal behavior of a living cell is governed by complex networks of interacting biomolecules. Models of these networks allow us to make predictions about cellular behavior under a variety of environmental cues. In this review, we focus on two broad classes of such models: biochemical network models and statistical inference models. In particular, we discuss a number of modeling approaches in the context of the assumptions that they entail, the types of data required for their inference, and the range of their applicability.
