I am a researcher (PhD student) working at Wageningen University & Research as bioinformatician and modeller. I am working as part of the MycoSynVac (http://www.mycosynvac.eu/) project on dynamic modelling of central carbon metabolism in M. pneumoniae, to be extended to full dynamic modelling of metabolism to be implemented in a whole cell model.
I am also looking into possibilities to improve standards in model generation using semantic technologies, improving automatic generation, annotation
The MycoSynVac project AIMS at using cutting-edge synthetic biology methodologies to engineer Mycoplasma pneumoniae as a universal chassis for vaccination.
Designing a universal Mycoplasma chassis that can be deployed as single- or multi-vaccine in a range of animal hosts. Annually, infections caused by Mycoplasma species in poultry, cows, and pigs result in multimillion Euro losses in the USA and Europe.
There is no effective vaccination against many Mycoplasmas that infect pets, humans and farm

2. To build upon M. pneumoniae models to develop a genome-scale, constraint-based model of M.
hyopneumoniae for vaccine optimization
3. To deploy the metabolic model(s) to: 1) the rational design and optimization of the vaccine chassis; 2)
aid the development of a higher-growth rate chassis; 3) assist the development of a nutrient optimized a
serum-free growth medium and; 4) assess, at genome scale, the metabolic

Comparison of Kcat values model and values from literature. Model values are based on Vmax enzyme parameters (maximum activity per enzyme molecule).
Literature values are largely based on whole cell enzyme extract assays and do not take into account allosteric control. In addition activity is measured at varying time points and varying conditions. The error based on differences in enzyme concentrations at different time points and the error in protein copy number measurements is taken into account
