The editors of this special issue of Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering were the main organizers for the First International Workshop Mathematical Methods in System Biology, that took place on January 4-7, 2010 at Tel Aviv University in Tel Aviv, Israel. The workshop, initially planned as a small meeting, was an overwhelming success with 170 participants from Israel, the US, Canada and Europe. It included about 100 presentations: invited talks, special sessions dedicated to application of mathematical tools to various areas in biology and poster sessions which gave graduate students and young scientists a stage to present their research. We managed to attract a good mix of mathematicians working on biological and medical applications with biologists and medical doctors interested to present their challenging problems and to find mathematical tools for their solution. We would like to take the opportunity to thank the Office of International Science and Engineering of the National Science Foundation and the Society for Mathematical Biology for their support in bringing US participants to this event. Thanks are also due to the Vice-President for Research and Development of Tel Aviv University, the Faculty of Exact Sciences and its Dean Prof. Haim Wolfson, and the School of Mathematical Sciences for their help with covering local expenses. Special thanks are coming to the supporting team of students, postdocs and administrative staff for their incredible contribution to the success of the workshop.
