Modeling and simulation of biopolymer networks: Classification of the cytoskeleton models according to multiple scales

We reviewed numerical/analytical models for describing rheological properties and mechanical behaviors of biopolymer networks with a focus on the cytoskeleton, a major component of a living cell. The cytoskeleton models are classified into three categories: the cell-scale continuum-based model, the...
