About the author

Jasmin Fisher
Researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge, Programming Principles & Tools group

Our research focuses on the design and analysis of executable computer algorithms describing biological phenomena. We call this approach Executable Biology. These kinds of models hold great promise for new discoveries in a wide variety of biological systems. Once an executable model has been built of a particular system, it can be used to get a global dynamic picture of how the system responds to various perturbations. In addition, preliminary studies can be quickly performed using executable models, saving valuable laboratory time and resources for only the most promising avenues.
