The Breitling group is interested in using computational approaches to understand complex biological systems, ranging from microbes to man. Two main strategies dominate our work: on the one hand, we develop methods to interpret “molecular profiles”, e.g. the global patterns of gene expression or the abundance of small molecules (metabolites) in biological samples. On the other hand, we develop quantitative models to describe and predict the behaviour of cells, e.g. after drug treatment or genetic manipulation.
