My main interest in the field of the Synthetic Biology is based on the mathematical modeling of new biological systems that the synthetic biology can proporcionate. I am specially interested in the Stochastic Pi Calculus (SPi), a new tool which in first instance (the Pi-Calculus) was thought to resolve concurrent problems in computer science, but in this case the Stochastic Pi Calculus is implemented modeling biological systems. This formal language has some advantages against the deterministic models based on ODE's or ODP's; the stochastic component give a better grade of accuracy for create different types of models.

The use of the SPi as a main tool to create my models has motivated myself because this formal language is not so known as the ODE's and I hope that some of my results could lead, at least in the iGEM, a different and very interesting new point of view since the most common ways of modeling.

My work in the team is focus in the modeling of biological processes, in specific a kind of oscillator that my teammate Federico designed for the last jamboree (November 2007).

The model was done in Stochastic Pi Calculus (SPi)and implemented in the Stochastic Pi Machine(SPiM), a simulator that was developed by Andrew Phillips.

The results of the simulation gave us an idea about how we should expect to see the GFP and RFP be expressed in the lab.
