abstract = {Mathematical modeling is a very powerful tool for
understanding natural phenomena. Such a tool carries its
own assumptions and should always be used critically. In
this chapter, we highlight the key ingredients and steps of
modeling and focus on their biological interpretation. In
particular, we discuss the role of theoretical principles
in writing models. We also highlight the meaning and
interpretation of equations. The main aim of this chapter
is to facilitate the interaction between biologists and
mathematical modelers. We focus on the case of cell
proliferation and motility in the context of multicellular
organisms.},
