COMPUTATIONAL AND SYSTEMS BIOLOGY

Starting from the human genome sequencing, in the last fifteen years there was a dramatic increase of connections between mathematics, statistics, computer science and biology to analyze the amount of information related to genes and proteins and the  interactions between different molecules. New insight is required of mathematical methods for representing and simulating biological complex systems. The Computational and Systems Biology Group of IASI has been created in 2005.
