Dynamics, Function & Morphology of Infection Processes

The research group Applied Systems Biology is concerned with the mathematical modelling and computer simulation of infection processes caused by human-pathogenic fungi. The spatio-temporal data basis for these models is acquired by automatizing the data analysis of microscopy images on infection processes for high-throughput scanning. Our aim is to unravel secrets of the dynamical, functional and morphological aspects of the host-pathogen interaction using approaches of image-based systems biology.
