Radiation biophysics and modelling of cellular processes
We are collaborating with the radiation biophysics group at GSI, modelling the processes that occur in the cell in response to a radiation damage. Furthermore, we have a cooperation with the groups of C. Cardoso and K. Hamacher in the Biology Department.
Stochastic modeling of biological networks
We investigate the effects of intrinsic noise on biological processes. Hereby we consider chemical reactions in cells as well as population models. In the context of the interdisciplinary research project Compugene, we utilize these results to improve the robustness of cellular processes against changes in the environment.
