Center for Studies in Physics and Biology

The Center is a group of scientists working on problems at the interface of physical and biological science. Much of the work at the Center aims to understand how physical laws govern the operation of the biochemical machinery and the processing of information inside cells. To this end, we study both the basic physical properties of biological systems (such as elasticity of DNA and DNA-protein interactions) and the application of physical techniques to the modeling of neural, genetic and metabolic networks. Current research projects at the Center range in character from bioinformatics to molecular biophysics to neuroscience and include:
