Statistical physics of cells and genomes

Contemporary biology is characterized by a massive flux of data, and by new high-precision techniques. These technological changes open new scientific perspectives, which in turn lead us to challenge the classic paradigms. In this context, quantitative approaches are essential, and modeling methods based on statistical physics find new avenues for application.
