A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Systems Biology

About

The Systems Biology group builds computational approaches to discover causal paths in complex diseases that connect their genetic or environmental causes to their higher-level effects.

Previous research

The rapid development of new measurement technologies provides unprecendented opportunities to observe complex disease at a large scale, and at different levels, including molecular (e.g., transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic) networks. Much of our research is therefore based on machine learning tools. Better understanding of the causal disease paths will lead to better treatment choices, and, ultimately, to medicine that prevents disease instead of reacting to it.

Our group is probably best known for discovering the ‘guilt-by-association’ principle in molecular networks, and for creating Cytoscape, an open-source community platform to visualize and analyze molecular networks. We are also member of the national “laboratory of excellence” (LabEx) programs Milieu Intérieur and IBEID. The site researchgate.net now states regularly that “our research items were the most cited research items from their institution”.

Future projects and goals

New developments in this very dynamic area of research are rapidly evolving from three interrelated aspects:

  • new measurement technologies (such as single cell RNA sequencing; Blecher-Gonen et al. 2019), requiring
  • new computational tools (such as LEAN analysis; Gwinner et al. 2017), leading to
  • new biological insights (such as a sparse, reproducible, biomarker for severe dengue infection; Nikolayeva et al. 2018), which then leads to new biological questions that need to be addressed with their own measurement and computational tools.

We therefore couple the development of new computational tools closely to the development of new technology, and ambitious biomedical research projects, currently in the areas of single cell sequencing technology, autoimmune disease and cancer.
