Biology is a large field of knowledge! As you give examples drawn from population biology (logistic population growth and Lotka-Voltera models), I will assume you are mainly interested in ecology and evolution. For analytical models used in ecology and evolution, I highly recommend the book A Biologist's Guide to Mathematical Modeling in Ecology and ...


I would point out that, assuming (as the other commenter noted) you are interested in analytic rather than statistical modelling (which seems a little unlikely to me given your area), most mathematical models are derived from first principles (often from physics) or other assumptions. This suggests (to me) that looking at models of totally unrelated systems ...


I've never used T-Coffee but it looks like the web-server version gives you a total score as well as a score for each individual sequence; do you know if those numbers are related to the numerical descriptors you need? A good place to start would be to read the documentation. Another good place to look would be the Google Groups page for T-Coffee.
