Tracking all cells of a living organism, their membranes and nucleus positions, their divisions, from the original stem cell to the embryo.
We develop original methodologies and tools for the in vivo multiscale and multimodal observation, quantification and multilevel theoretical modelling of biological processes. Our strategies are the basis for the predictive understanding of the morphogenesis of living organisms in normal and pathological conditions and open the way to new kind of pharmacology and toxicology screening schemes.
In this context we foresee the following missions:
- anticipating the needs of integrative cell biology and developmental biology in terms of methods and tool
- tackling challenging biological issues as proof of concept,
- proposing collaborative services through an innovative platform for imaging, image processing and multilevel modeling,
- fostering the expansion of a transdisciplinary community through the e-Laboratory Embryome-DC in the context of the Complex Systems UNESCO UNITWIN Complex Systems-DC
BioEmergences and ISC-PIF
Bioemergence was incubated at ISC-PIF between 2007 and 2014 before becoming a CNRS Unit per se (USR3695 CNRS). The two CNRS units has strong interactions and some members of Bioemergences working on theoretical issues are still hosted at ISC-PIF.
