Center for Complexity & Biosystems

The functioning of cellular processes, the organization of a biological organism, social dynamics and the behavior of many materials are complex phenomena emerging in a non trivial way from the interaction of an ensemble of elementary elements. To tackle the scientific and technological challenges posed by complex systems we need a new interdisciplinary approach that can help us to interpret the growing amount of data in all these fields of research. The CC&B is taking the challenge to study emergent properties of complex, biological and biomimetic materials, to understand how elementary cellular and bio-molecular processes result in the physiological and pathological behavior of an organism, and to analyze quantitatively dynamics of complex networks.
