Institute of Systems & Synthetic Biology
The Institute of Systems & Synthetic Biology (iSSB) is a mixed research unit of the University of Évry-Val-d'Essonne and CNRS, also granted by Genopole® and affiliated to U. Paris-Saclay. The Institute is structured into 4 research teams. Systems Biology integrates experimental, theoretical, and computational studies to model living systems. In this research area, the MEGA team develops models and experimental methods for studying the structure, architecture, and expression of genomes. Xenome, Synth-Bio and Bio-RetroSynth teams use Systems Biology models to design, build, and test new biological circuits and devices using Synthetic Biology principles.
