We study biological systems from a rigorous mathematical perspective, and build realistic models that help us gain a deeper understanding of the physiology. Most of our work is on the mechanism of cell division cycle control as seen in budding yeast, fission yeast, Xenopus embryos and egg extracts, Drosophila embryos and mammalian cells.

A system level understanding of the cell cycle controls is recently reviewed in Handbook of Systems Biology (Tyson and Novak 2012).
