Cell Biophysics


We model different types of biological processes occurring in the interior of living cells using techniques previously developed in physics and mathematics. We consider problems at different scales, from the stochastic behaviour of individual ion gates to the spatial particularities of coupled opposite enzymatic reactions or the viscoelastic properties of the cytoskeleton of cells. Analytic calculations together with the use of numerical simulations permit to reveal some of the mechanisms involved in the biological processes inside of the cells and their relation with the external responses to small perturbations like cell excitations of neurons or cell locomotion.
