Systems Biology

Life’s processes are complex emergent phenomena involving the interplay of a huge number of small and large molecules far from thermal equilibrium. Systems biology is devoted to the experimental study and quantitative analysis of complex biosystems, their theoretical understanding and modeling. At the interface with synthetic biology, systems biology also aims at the controlled alteration of systems behavior. At the Department of Bioscience, researchers develop and utilize high-throughput experimental tools to study biological complexity (sequencing, gene expression studies, lipidomics, metabolomics), computationally explore such systems and actively work on the implementation of synthetic molecular networks in vivo.
