Information processing by living systems

The Physics of Living Matter group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania studies how organisms gather, process and respond to information. Much of our work focuses on computation and communication in the brain, but group members also work on cell signaling and regulatory networks. The group exploits theoretical and computational approaches from physics, statistics and computer science, and relies on experimental data gathered both within our lab and by collaborators at Penn and elsewhere.
