About the Systems Biochemistry Group
The mission of the Systems Biochemistry Group at the LCSB is to conduct fundamental research on systems of biochemical reactions in general, with particular application to Parkinson’s disease.
Systems biochemistry is the application of a systems approach to understand biochemistry. A systems approach consists of an iterative cycle of mathematical and computational modelling and quantiative experimental measurement. Mathematical and computational models are formal representations of biochemical knowledge that are used to propose hypotheses, design experiments and interpret experimental results. Quantitative experimental measurements are used to test hypotheses generated by the model and generate data used to refine the model.
The synergistic and interdiciplinary objectives of the group are:
