Executable Biology is working to understand the orchestration of biological systems through construction, execution, and analysis of computational models describing biological phenomena, in particular cell fate decisions and molecular mechanisms of cancer.
- Signalling networks regulating cell fate decisions during development and cancer.
- Application of formal methods to model and analyze biological systems.
- Design of formal modelling languages and tools tailored for biology.
Our research focuses on the design and analysis of executable computer algorithms describing biological phenomena. We call this approach Executable Biology. Image credit: David Benque
