This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed extended postproceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Membrane Computing, WMC 2006, held in Leiden, Netherlands in July 2006.

The 27 revised full papers presented together with 7 invited papers went through two rounds of reviewing and improvement. The papers in this volume cover all the main directions of research in membrane computing, ranging from theoretical topics in mathematics and computer science, and to application issues. Special attention was paid to the interaction of membrane computing with biology, focusing both on the biological roots of membrane computing and on applications of membrane computing in biology and medicine.
