Themes of the team

published on , updated on

We address fundamental questions in biology from a physicist’s perspective, combining theoretical and experimental approaches.

We investigate the role of stochasticity in genetic regulation and in the evolution of ecosystems, the effects of the evolutionary process on the features of living systems, and we develop new approaches both in synthetic biology and in the field of biomaterials.
