I am very much interested in the way nature acquires, stores and processes information in biochemical, biological and morphological processes such as regulation in metabolisms and gene or protein expression, cell differentiation and development of whole organisms. An understanding of these mechanisms will not only permit insight in biological and pathological processes, but also provide methods and algorithms which may be useful in other fields of science.
