About the Computational Biology Group

The research focus of our group is to develop new methods for the modeling and analysis of biological systems and to utilize those methods for elucidating disease diagnosis, mechanism and progression.

In particular, we are interested in the study of different aspects of biological networks (gene regulatory, metabolic, and protein- protein interaction networks) in terms of their topology, dynamics, and perturbations by combining concepts from different areas of mathematics, such as graph, information and game theories. Our approach is to transform the idea of complex diseases (neurodegenerative diseases, metabolic diseases and cancer) into quantitative deterministic states of a computational model that can be used to prevent, diagnose or treat the disease under investigation.
