Understanding the biological circuits that perform computations within the cell is a central problem in computational and systems biology. From the point of view of informatics and systemics, biology offer the challenge of understanding the complex behaviors of interacting molecules evolved to operate with both remarkable precision and robustness in the context of genes, environments and their complex interactions. The theme of our research is stochasticity, central to properly capture both the stability and the multiple sources of uncertainties needed for modeling biosystems in a realistic way. We are developing analytical and computational frameworks to model such complex and stochastic behaviors using a combined discrete (Markov Chain) and continuous (Stochastic Differentials) approach, starting from bi-stable switches, limited cycles to feed-forward loops as well as their coupling.  Our goal is to adequately describe observed stochasticity, variations and heterogeneity in biological systems for multiple scales of biological organizations.
