What we do

We develop and apply computational and – most recently – experimental methods to analyse and design complex cellular networks, with a focus on large-scale mechanistic approaches. The group comprises biologists, computer scientists, engineers, and mathematicians, who perform interdisciplinary research in systems and synthetic biology. We focus on developing and applying computational methods and mechanistic mathematical models to study complex cellular networks and their operating principles, and to enable their rational re-design. Applications rely on our experimental lab, which uses budding yeast as a model organism, and on collaboration.
