Physics of Cellular Computation



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

9 Jul: Andrew co-organizes and Tommy speaks at the Mathematical Approaches to Cell-Cell Communication and Collective Behaviours workshop at the Banff International Research Station.

7 Jun: Shivam and Julien's paper on how cells tell time appears in PLoS Computional Biology. 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
