The Quantitative Biology program of the Institut Pasteur is intended to facilitate research and education at the interface of biology and the more quantitative sciences. One of the major aims of Quantitative Biology is thus to understand the underlying principles of complex biological behavior in terms of physical and mathematical models. This approach overarches all fields of biology.

Post-doctoral and PhD positions: Population imaging and holographic stimulation during perceptual decision making
Perceptual discriminations are among the most important decision making processes. One of the most prominent questions in systems neuroscience is how the perception of a given stimulus is encoded in the brain and how […]

Quantitative biology at the Institut Pasteur
Many Pasteur laboratories are integrating physical approaches in their studies ranging from structural biology, via cell biology, to infection, neurobiology and development.
• Multiscale self-organization is studied at the level of protein machineries in bacteria, cytoskeleton during the migration of eucaryotic cells and organizaton of tissues during development.
• Cellular and tissue mechanics are explored during bacterial aggregation, grastrulation and heart development as well as during amoebae movement.
• Information processing and signaling are studied in the context of neurobiology, 3D genome architecture and transciption.
Objectives of the Qbio program at Institut Pasteur
The Quantitative Biology program aims to encourage these developments on campus. The major purpose of this program is:
• To foster interactions between scientists involved in Quantitative Biology at Institut Pasteur through seminars and mini-symposiums.
• To bring quantitatively trained scientists into biology
• To encourage biologists to integrate quantitative models into their research
