Which software/s I need to learn for doing Mathematical Modelling? Please give your response of Mathematical Modelling pertaining to Systems Biology or Computational Neuroscience.
An elaborate response for my questions with some links to scientific references will be appreciable. Thank you

The language that you use doesn't much matter. These days, most people would probably use python since it has a bunch of really useful libraries. Having said that, you can use whatever language you know (when I did some computational neuroscience I used fortran, C, matlab and whatever Wavemetrics calls the their language in Igor Pro).

Regarding what you need to learn, I'd suggest some programming, a bit of math, and enough biology to understand what the system is doing. Given such a vague question a longer reply isn't possible.

I agree with Devon. The programming language does not seem to be that important. Python as well as the more statistical/mathematical languages R and matlab seem to be a good choice and it might not matter what you pick here. Quite frankly, you kind of approach this thing from the wrong side. You should care about the maths first! Because this is where it starts and this is also the hard part if you what to model something that hasn't been done before! Once you have all your equations written down on a piece of paper - once you have your theory so to speak - then and only then you can think about the implementation.

Of course, the implementation itself can be tricky too, if you have a huge model that you have to compute on a cluster or whatever. Still, mathematical modelling starts with maths, not with the programming language itself.
