It's easy to see why escape rooms would appeal to Zachary Knight, PhD, who approaches puzzles about physiology with a blend of logic and out-of-the-box thinking. Knight is an assistant professor of physiology and a member of the UCSF Weill Institute of ...

Institute for Theoretical Biology (ITB)

Berlin - Germany

Over the last decades, biology has developed from a mainly descriptive to a more analytical science. New connections with physics, chemistry, mathematics, and medicine have been forged, while theoretical biology has become a discipline in its own right. At German universities, however, centers for research and teaching in the theoretical biosciences are still rare. To help fill this void, the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Technology has created the Innovationskolleg Theoretische Biologie at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Supported by a special grant which is administered by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the Innovationskolleg Theoretische Biologie (ITB) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin has been founded to overcome this deficit. The ITB is rooted in two departments of the Humboldt-Universität, the Medizinische Fakultät und Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät I, and maintains close relationships to the Freie Universität (FU), the Technische Universität (TU), the Max-Delbrück-Centrum, the Max-Planck-Institut für Molekulare Genetik, and the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin. Through its structure and organization, the ITB is well suited as a meeting place for scientists who seek to collaborate with theoretical biologists. The ITB will thus allow theoreticians to get critical feedback from experimental researchers and, in turn, foster new experimental projects to test fundamental theories. Further information may be obtained from the website.

Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute (MTBI)
United States

Established in 1996 at Cornell University, the Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute (MTBI) was moved to Arizona State University in the spring of 2004. With the culmination of the 2006 summer institute, MTBI has mentored 277 undergraduate participants who have produced 111 technical reports. The Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute supports the development of students through educational, research and mentorship activities fro

Theoretical Biology

Theoretical Biology Group of the ETH Zurich. We are part of the Institute of Integrative Biology and the Department of Environmental Sciences at the ETH Zurich. Our research and teaching focuses on microbial population biology. Most of our work is theoretical/computational, but we also do some experimental work.

Journal of Theoretical Biology

This journal is the leading forum for theoretical papers that give insight into biological processes. It covers a very wide range of topics and is of interest to biologists in many areas of research.

Theoretical Population Biology

This journal presents articles on the theoretical aspects of the biology of populations, particularly in the areas of ecology, genetics, demography, and epidemiology.

Careers in Theoretical Biology

Guidance brochure for high school and undergraduate students. Defines theoretical biology, gives examples of its application, and provides advice on preparing for a career in the field.

Theoretical Biology of Systems

The research group of Athel Cornish-Bowden are interested in the definition of life, especially in relation to the (M,R) systems of Robert Rosen, and also in metabolic regulation and control.

Theoretical Biology and Biophysics
United States

This group (T-10) at Los Alamos National Laboratory focuses on the modeling, analysis and informatics of molecular and cellular biological data.

Theoretical Biology Groningen

Focuses on competition and natural selection, more specifically evolutionary game theory, life history theory, sexual selection, sex allocation, metapopulation genetics, resource competition, and interference competition.

Theoretical and Computational Biology Group
United Kingdom

The Theoretical and computational biology group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge is headed by Cyrus Chothia. The group has a strong interest in genome analysis and protein structure.
