Research Interests

The Arkin Lab’s research focuses on the systems and synthetic biology of microorganisms. They are experts in theory, computation and experiments surrounding the modeling of biological systems at the molecular and population level and have developed a number of genome scale technologies with which we can rapidly assess the genomic function of uncharacterized microorganisms. The lab’s models span the deterministic and stochastic analysis of both homogeneous and spatially distributed systems.
