Here we review eight different multiscale modeling efforts dealing
with cellular systems in biology. The first two models focus on
collagen based tissue, one dealing with the biomechanical properties
of the tissue and the other focusing on how the dermis is remodeled
in scar tissue formation. The next two models deal with first
avascular tumor growth and then the role of the vasculature in tumor
growth. We then consider two models which use the Immersed Boundary
method to model tissue properties and cell-cell adhesion. Finally
we conclude with two models with treatments of the Cellular Potts
Model. The first models somitogenisis in the chick and the second
links the Cellular Potts Model with the Keller-Segel model.
