Physics of Cellular Computation



6 Jan: Sean presents a poster at the Gordon Research Conference on Stochastic Physics in Biology in Ventura, CA.

17 Nov: Andrew and Sean speak and Xiaoling and Shivam present posters at the Conference on Quantitative Approaches in Biology at Northwestern.

25 Jul: Xiaoling and Sacha's paper on percolation in bacteria appears as the cover article in Cell Systems. Congratulations both!


Computation underlies everything that a cell does, from sensing its environment, to making decisions, to executing behaviors. The Mugler Group investigates cellular computation using theoretical physics, to further our understanding of biological mechanisms and help combat disease. Learn more
