Center for Computational and Theoretical Biology

Summary

We use image analysis, topological quantification and growth modeling to understand the mechanisms behind the development and function of spatial biological networks.

Details

Image Analysis

We develop novel methods to extract curvilinear structures from 3D microscopy images, and to derive their skeleton and topological structure.

Modeling

By simulating the growth of spatial networks under different assumptions, we want to understand the relationship between local growth rules and global network connectivity.
