Systems Biology

Research in this theme ranges across scales from the sub-cellular to understanding the organisation of ecosystems.

Studies includes characterisation of small molecules and proteins, reconstructing gene and protein signalling networks through to application of next generation genomic technologies to cure crop diseases, investigate genetic disorders and developing novel biotechnologies.

Central to this research is the application of computational, mathematical and novel imaging approaches to predict and inform experimentation.

To facilitate these interdisciplinary activities a new Living Systems building is being built. The facility will accommodate researchers from biology, physics, mathematics, computer science and the Exeter Medical School.

Members of Biosciences involved in Systems biology research include:
