Welcome to Quantitative and Theoretical Biology

Welcome to the Institute of Quantitative and Theoretical Biology at Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf. Our research focuses on the development of theoretical concepts and mathematical models of biological processes. Current scientific interests are photosynthesis, plant energy metabolism, secondary plant metabolism, the interaction between microbes and photosynthetic organisms and polymer biochemistry.



New publications

Dr. Adélaïde Raguin published a new paper: Raguin, A., Kern, N., Parmeggiani, A., 2020. ''Stochastic modelling of collective motor protein transport through a crossing of microtubules''. Journal of Theoretical Biology 110370. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jtbi.2020.110370 . (Also available via arxiv.org/abs/2006.10416)


New page section: Models

We added a new section on our webpage "Models". In this section you can find links and descriptions of some of the models used in our institute for analysing complex biological phenomena


Covid-19 and plants from a computational perspective

What do epidemiologic models simulating the spread of the corona virus have in common with the prediction of photosynthesis performance of plants? Specialy for this month's edition of Planter's Punch by CEPLAS, our Team has created a video where we explain links between modelling infectious diseases and plants. Check it out.
