Systems Biology of Metabolism

The mission of our systems biology research is to identify and quantify the key regulation mechanisms that control cellular metabolism in microbes.

The speciality of our interdisciplinary team of biologists, engineers, and computer scientists are high-throughput experimental technologies for quantitative metabolomics, 13C-based intracellular flux analysis, and dynamic GFP analysis in mini-scale cultivations. Different types of mathematical models are then used to quantitatively relate metabolomics, expression and proteomics data to the functional network output in terms of fluxes. Read more
