Modeling the development of organisms and diseases has been of interest for decades. Often, complex systems of development or signaling pathways can be explained and modeled to a high degree of accuracy with only a few simplifying assumptions. Complex systems such as pattern development, bacterial growth, and tumor formation can be modeled numerically using a reaction diffusion model with relatively few factors and still give accurate results, allowing exploration of equilibrium and
