Research theme

The progress of modern biology revealed that biological phenomena are governed by complex network systems including many molecules, cells or organs. For the aim of understanding the functions of complex systems, we adopt mathematical and computational methods. By theoretical approaches we decipher huge amounts of experimental information, and to give integrative understanding for the biological systems. Our final goal is to open a new bioscience which will progress by the repeats of the theoretical predictions and the experimental verifications. We are promoting multiple projects of collaborations with experimental biologists. One of our recent projects is studying dynamics of complex network systems in biology. We developed some theoretical frameworks to extract the important aspects of dynamics from network structure alone, without assuming other quantitative details. By combining our theory with experimental measuring and controling, we will determine mechanism of dynamical behaviours and understand the principles for the biological functions.
