Our two locations at the University of Edinburgh: the Informatics Forum and the CH Waddington Building.

what we do

Our team develops computational methods to study biological networks in living cells. We use mathematics to understand natural networks and to design novel systems for Biotechnology and Healthcare. In our research we employ a wide range of mathematical methods, such as machine learning, control theory, stochastic analysis and network theory. Large parts of our work are in collaboration with Systems and Synthetic Biology labs in the UK and abroad.
