The research of the Theoretical Systems Biology Group focuses on the statistical, mathematical, evolutionary and functional analysis of molecular interaction networks and dynamical processes in biological systems. We are particularly interested in protein-protein, regulatory, signalling and stress response networks in pathogens and their hosts.

In order to address these problems, we develop and use a diverse range of mathematical, statistical and computational tools. The overarching interests of the group’s members are the inference and comparison of the mechanisms underlying biological systems, in order to understand their function and evolution. But we are also interested in further development and deeper understanding of the mathematical structures and approaches used in the modern life- and biomedical sciences in their own right.
