Welcome to Molina Lab

Nacho Molina The main research activity in Molina lab is to build stochastic biophysical models of eukaryotic gene regulation. Recent experimental technologies allow us to measure Protein-DNA interactions, post-transcriptional histone modifications and chromatin 3D structure at the genome level (Chip-seq, Hi-C, etc.). Time-course experiments using these methods present a unique opportunity to study the dynamics of gene regulation. The next challenge is now to integrate all these data in a coherent and comprehensive mathematical framework using stochastic and probabilistic modeling as well as statistical mechanics techniques, in summary, to move from descriptive biology to predictive systems biology.
