Vincent Danos
Computational biology teacher


Vincent Danos is Directeur de Recherches at CNRS (Paris, PPS lab), Professor at the University of Edinburgh, and an external faculty member of the Santa Fe Institute, and also a visiting Professor at the Harvard Medical School (Fontana lab). At AIV he teaches the CompBio 2 course with Jean Krivine and Jérôme Féret.

This course complements Grégory Batt’s CompBio 1 and introduces rule-based formalisms for the modeling of combinatorial biomolecular networks. He is interested in domain-specific modeling/programming languages, mostly, but not only, in the context of systems and synthetic biology.

In the larger view his interest is towards formal approaches to complex systems, where syntax meets dynamics (and learning). His methodology is based on mathematics.
