The Institute

The goal of the INET research is to understand the principles and specifics of protein interaction network function, and how perturbations by microbes and evolutionary processes result in altered phenotypes.

The underlying question is: How are biological networks modulated to exhibit desirable novel phenotypes?

The vision of our research is that understanding molecular networks and their dynamics by natural perturbations will facilitate their targeted modulation for applications in medicine and bio economy.

In our integrated research we use high-throughput protein-interaction mapping, modeling, bioinformatic data integration, and hypothesis-driven cell biology, genetics, and biochemistry.
