Computational Biology

Computational Biology addresses problems in biology, biomedicine and ecology through image analysis, theory, computer simulations and data visualization. In Dresden we focus on dynamic processes in cells and embryos but also on biomedical questions like tissue regeneration. An overarching question is how complex system behaviour at a large scale can emerge from simpler physical and chemical interactions at smaller scales. In close collaboration with experimentalists, our research groups develop and apply computational tools including image analysis and image quantification algorithms, model-based image segmentation and cell tracking algorithms, adaptive particle methods for spatiotemporal simulations, parallel high-performance computing, multi-scale mechanistic model simulations and deep learning. We are strong advocates of open source culture and community integration.
