Informatics Life-Sciences Institute

The ILSI was formed for work at the informatics/life sciences interface and will draw together and build on existing work including well-established activities in neuroinformatics, sensori-motor control and bio-mimetic robotics, together with computational systems biology, synthetic biology and bio-informatics.

Here is a set of slides describing some of its activities.

  • Douglas Armstrong - Bioinformatics, Neuroinformatics, Behaviour Genetics and Astrobiology and Gravitational Biology
  • Vincent Danos - Formal and foundational approaches to complex systems; syntaxes for representing, modelling, and understanding biological networks; rule-based modeling.
  • Stephen Gilmore - Formal methods of program development, formal specifications, software engineering, concurrent systems.
  • Igor Goryanin Systems Biology, Formal languages.
  • Michael Herrmann Neural computations.
  • Jane Hillston - Stochastic process algebras, Markov processes and performance modelling.
  • Gordon Plotkin - Applications of logic, semantics, and type-theory to process calculi and computational biology.
  • Subramanian Ramamoorthy Supervised Learning, Robotics.
  • Guido Sanguinetti Machine learning, transcriptional regulation.
  • Ian Stark Formal languages for modeling biological networks.
  • Sethu Vijayakumar - Statistical Machine Learning, Robotics, Motor Control, Multimodal Sensory-Motor Integration and Computational Neuroscience.
  • Barbara Webb - Perceptual systems for the control of behaviour, Robot models of animals. Simulation of neural circuits.
  • Bonnie Webber - Question answering, bioinformatics, discourse, Natural Language semantics, knowledge representation and inference.
