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 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.

Theory Seminar: Lars Folke Olsen (University of Southern Denmar)

This time in the theory seminar Lars Folke Olsen is presenting ("Coupling of the dynamics of metabolism tothe state of intracellular water") in our theory seminar. He introduces us to the  Association-Induction (AI) hypothesis, a fluorescent method to study the polarization of water in cells and its application in exploring the oscillation of glycolysis intermediates, ATP as well as NADH in yeast.


Theory seminar: Torsten Houwaart

This time Torsten Houwaart is going to present his talk: "Full steam SARS-Cov2 sequencing". We are excited and looking forward to hear a lot of interesting things from his research.

QTB Group Meeting in the time of pandemic

Our group is meeting regularly to keep up with each others research progress. We share not only our results, but also concerns regarding the current global situation, the future of academic conferences and need for more seminars streamed from our Institute. Today before the meeting, despite the currently mandatory Kontaktverbot, we have managed to keep our tradition alive, by holding an on-line breakfast. We all hope that the next scheduled breakfast in May will be already possible to be organised at the University.
