The stressosome is composed of three proteins that assemble in the form of an icosahedron. Icosahedra can be modelled in different ways with different abstraction levels regarding the original stressosome structure. The pdf-figure introduces geometric modelling of the stressosome using origami and particle dynamics simulations.

Modelling of the general stress response activation cascade of sigB in B. subtilis in response to starvation.
Modelling carbon core metabolism in Bacillus subtilis – Exploring the contribution of protein complexes in core carbon and nitrogen metabolism.
Bacillus subtilis is a prime model organism for systems biology approaches because it is one of the most advanced models for functional genomics. Furthermore, comprehensive information on cell and molecular biology, physiology and genetics is available and the European Bacillus community (BACELL) has a well-established reputation for applying
The objective of this project is an integrated understanding the metabolic, proteomic and genetic network that controls the transition from growth to glucose starvation. This transition is a fundamental ecophysiological response that serves as a scientific model for environmental signal integration and is pivotal for industrial fermentations of Bacillus that occur predominantly under nutrient starvation.

In this kind of studies sigmaB stress response is induced by the addition of artificial inducers of sigmaB. For example simgaB is downstream of a Pspac promoter and induced by the addition of IPTG.
A ctc::lacZ reporter gene is used to monitor sigmaB activity.

The stressosome is an important sensor of environmental stresses in B. subtilis. It is formed by three protein types that form an icosahedral geometric protein complex. There are uncertanties how protein interactions take place, what the effects on the response behaviour of activation and inhibition of phosphorylation among proteins is, and what kind of proximal signal activates the stressosome in the first place.
To answer these questions a computational modelling approach was developed. This
