Bartosz and Nikita join the IB² research day in Brussels, Belgium

Nikita, Bartosz and Daniel joined the IB² research day on Bioinformatics at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels in November. Bartosz gave a talk presenting his recent work on the use of the data-driven machine learning techniques (SINDy) to identify biological oscillator models from time series. Nikita presented a poster on how cell cycle duration scales with …

Welcome Daniel

Welcome Daniel as the newest member of our lab! He will be working on modeling the nonlinear spatial coordination of cell division by studying how hierarchies of different wave patterns interact.

Lab retreat of DiBS lab in Borgloon

This year the DiBS lab went on a lab retreat at the Castle van Gors near Borgloon. During 3 days we discussed our research, got to know each other better outside of the office, and enjoyed various games of Kubb and barbecues in the gardens of the castle.

Welcome Nikita

Welcome to our lab, Nikita! Nikita has investigated nonlinear dynamics, synchronization and chaotic behavior in high-energy electron flows during his thesis and has since then switched to the topic of graph theory and neuroscience. He will use his knowledge from machine Learning, statistics and nonlinear dynamics to analyze experimental data of frog egg extracts and …

This grant by the Belgian Foundation against Cancer and Vocatio will provide extra support for her PhD work. Congratulations for this wonderful recognition!

DiBS team makes 2nd place in Xterra Belgium in Namur

Liliana, Arno and Bartosz have successfully competed as a team in the relay triathlon competition of this year’s Xterra Belgium in Beez (near Namur). Bartosz (swimming), Arno (cycling) and Liliana (running) were able to put in a great performance and achieved the 2nd place. Well done guys!

Liliana presented her work during a workshop by The Company of Biologists in Buxted, UK

After overcoming visa problems and an adventurous travel, Liliana participated in the Company of Biologists Workshop “Cell Size and Growth, From Single Cells to the Tree of Life“ in Buxted, UK in April. Liliana presented how the nuclei can influence the cell cycle period in frog egg extracts and it was excited to see and …
