Systems Biology (SysBio) comes as next level of our modelling activities indicated in other topics of research interest. We see there enormous potential for development where our skills can be applied in global research topics. Application of control theory looking at complexity of living systems, development of SysBio dedicated software, development of different IT support are directions where we have high potential.
Currently we study the BioModels database using the new version of COPASI. Currently we investigate recognition of control networks in molecular processes focusing on control loops, their interaction to get closer to the miracle of stability of a cell.
Another topic of research is the process of glycolisis because of rich amount of data. We are currently looking for possibilities to extract more knowledge of existing data.

Under name multiobject biological systems is meant wide range of possible systems that consist of high number individual units. Examples are: forest as a system with trees as multiobjects, fish crowd as a system and fish as a multiobject.
As a model organism a bee colony is used to apply and test different approaches for dynamic modelling under data insufficiency. A methodology has been created 1) to develop the dynamic model of biological system and 2) to develop a control system for control of the biological system represented as a set of control loops.
