The BMBF-funded project "Modelling Pain Switches" involves 9 teams (wet-lab's as well as dry-lab's), one of them at the BTU Cottbus. The project aims at the mathematical modelling of signalling switches responsible for pain sensitisation. Modelling and model analysis will apply qualitative, stochastic, and continuous Petri nets.

"Glasgow team scoops the Environment prize and gold medal in the 2007 international Genetically Engineered Machines competition (Synthetic Biology);

The team comprised 11 highly talented undergraduate students and two instructors from 3 faculties (IBLS, FIMS, Engineering), plus a set of academics lead by Prof David Gilbert (Computing Science) and Dr Susan Rosser (BioMedical and Life Sciences). Prof Monika Heiner from Cottbus University, Germany, acted as an external advisor. Snoopy & Charlie, two Petri net tools developed in Cottbus, were used aiding in the process of formalising the original biologists’ models."
