Participating Researchers and Institutions:
The group selected to establish this I-CORE is a group under the scientific management of Prof. Amit Meller of the Technion consisting of researchers from the Technion, Bar-Ilan University, the Hebrew University, Tel-Aviv University and the Weizmann Institute of Science.
Scientific Management Members:
Additional I-CORE Members:
Major physical methodology developments in recent years have enabled direct manipulation and probing of biological processes at the single-molecule and single-cell levels. These capabilities continuously produce novel scientific insights with unprecedented precision and resolution. They probe the physical properties of diverse biological systems, unveiling the essential role embodied by noise and fluctuations within biological processes. These approaches are bound to provide a statistical description of biological processes and systems, leading to a new generation of biomedical applications and eventually instrumentation.
There are three complimentary, interconnected themes, for the I-CORE:
1. Biomolecular systems (organizational mechanics of genomes, transcriptional dynamics, protein translation initiation and folding).
2. Cellular processes (cell differentiation and cell-cell interactions).
3. Experimental Methods and Techniques development.
