Our understanding of biology has been revolutionized by the development of genomic and proteomic technologies, in particular deep sequencing and mass spectrometry. Such technologies have been providing precise information about parts (DNA, RNA, proteins) that make up a cell. Remarkably, however, our understanding of how these parts self-organize and give rise to a living cell have been lagging behind. The overarching goal of our research is to characterize general principles by which proteins self-organize in space and time. In this endeavor, we develop computational as well as experimental approaches and bridge different fields of biology.
