The MSV group aims to design algorithms and models to decode life. They are particularly interested in addressing challenges in systems biology and genomics. Both teams involved in the group aim at answering biological questions by complementary approaches. How is the information coded and transmitted? How to predict the activity of the compounds, their interactions? How to simulate them? To produce methods and software to answer those questions, the group relies on the skills of its members who come from different fields and futhermore on numerous collaborations with biology teams.
