ODE modeling

Quantitative models have a long tradition in developmental biology. The most common approach specifies the systems as ordinary differential equations (ODE). The equations describe the concentrations of reactants over time.

Our research particularly focuses on the Wnt signaling pathway, and on models for stem cell renewal and ageing.
