Bioinformatics and Computational Biophysics
In our research we are developing mathematical or computational models
for biological systems. Often these models are probabilistic because
biological systems are variable and not completely characterized, and
probabilities are an effective way of dealing with variability. We can
then infer quantitative relationships by computational methods such as
This is a Swiss knife approach that is basically applicable to all kinds of biology. Accordingly, we have fruitful collaborations with researchers from many areas, e.g. developmental biologists, virologists, immunologists, cancer researchers, or ecologists.
