Arkin Lab Homepage

Welcome to the Arkin Laboratory for quantitative biology. We are interested in developing a physically-based engineering discipline for cellular and multicellular systems. Such a discipline will lead to a deeper understanding of cellular regulation and development, more efficient discovery of cellular networks, and a better ability to engineer or control cells for industrial or medical purposes. To this end we develop and apply mathematical theory, computational and experimental approaches to analysis of cellular function.

New features in the Arkin Lab:

Techniques employed by the laboratory include:

  • Physical chemistry and modeling of cellular milieu including gene expression, enzymology, transport and mechanics
  • Theory of chemical, biochemical, and genetic networks. Discovery and characterization of regulatory motifs.
  • Dynamical system, control and stochastic process theory applied to biological networks
  • Database and knowlege-base creation, curation and mining
  • Functional sequence and structure analysis
  • Statistical data analysis: microarrays, proteomics, metabolite profiling, imaging
  • Learning models from data
  • Engineering analysis and simulation of multiscale, multiresolution biological systems
  • Collaboratory software for biological data analysis and simulation
  • Design and implementation complex gene expression networks in cells
  • Design and implementation of molecular and cellular biosensors
