Executable Biology

Laboratory Location: Microsoft Research 


Departmental Affiliation: Department of Biochemistry



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.
