 Nom de l 'équipe: Génophysique / Genomic Physics


Thématique de l'équipe (< 10 lignes) :
One of the main questions we are focusing on is how bacteria compute
patterns of active genes in response to stimuli and cues using both the specific
chemical binding of specialized proteins (the "regulatory network") and the
physical organization of the bacterial genome as a complex polymer. We also
study the architecture and evolution of regulatory networks, quantitative
descriptions of bacterial growth, and the laws that determine the partitioning
of genomes into functional and evolutionary elements.


Techniques utilisées :
The Genophysique (Genomic Physics) group combines tools from
theoretical physics (statistical mechanics, soft condensed matter,
hydrodynamics), to study biological questions concerning genomes and
the cells that carry them. We favor a bottom-up approach where simple
models are gradually constructed from data analysis and experiments.
