The Howard group mathematically models biological systems at the cellular level, constructing simple models that can nevertheless make surprising and counter-intuitive predictions to be tested experimentally.

The group's approach is highly interdisciplinary, and relies heavily on techniques from statistical physics as well as on close collaboration with experimental groups both at the John Innes Centre and elsewhere.

An emerging focus within the group is the use of analogue versus digital control in biology, a fundamental question with exciting applications to epigenetic dynamics, cellular resource allocation and cell size control.

The group are currently working on;
