Our Vision and Mission
Our primary mission is to unveil the quantitative principles that shape and rule living systems. In particular, our research activities are focused on elucidating how information is generated, processed, and exploited in living systems by adopting an information theory approach. Through the integration of theoretical and computational approaches with various types of quantitative data, we are taking on the challenge of establishing a new quantitative theory for living systems.
Besides providing novel insight into the general principles of living systems, we envision that such a theory may in turn be applicable for the design of new computational and engineering systems.
