The MaIAGE laboratory gathers mathematicians, computer scientists, bioinformaticians and biologists to tackle problems from biology, agronomy and ecology. Our research concerns processes at various levels, ranging from molecular, cellular or multicellular levels to organisms, populations, and entire ecosystems.
MaIAGE develops new methods in mathematics, statistics, and computer science, which may be generic or driven by specific biological problems. A particular focus is on developing software, databases, ontologies and web services to be used by biologists in analyzing data or mining the scientific literature.
A main expertise of the laboratory is in statistical inference and dynamic modelling, along with bioinformatics, automatic control and algorithmics. Research and engineering activities are based on strong involvement in the target disciplines: ecology, environment, molecular biology and systems biology.
