Our Research

Research in the Institute spans the complete range of biological scales from genes and genetic regulation through proteins, post-translational modification and cellular function to whole organisms, populations and ecosystems.

We use state-of-the-art “omics” technologies to generate large data-sets both within and across these scales. We also develop new mathematical and computational models to make sure we can fully exploit these data.

The Institute is home to three departments, working together across four cross-cutting themes.
