Biological Physics

Main Content

The biological physics group seeks to understand the dynamics of biological systems arising from interactions at different scales and organizational levels. Specific areas of interest include the stochasticity of gene expression, the cellular functions arising from signal transduction and gene regulatory networks, the dynamics of neural networks that underlie stereotypical behaviors such as birdsong, how sensory information is stored as memory, and the stability of mutualistic ecological communities. These problems can seldom be solved by purely reductionist methods and they call for creative and interdisciplinary approaches.
