Violin plot of the metabolic control of model parameters on the flux through PFK (as a proxy for flux through glycolysis) based on a 100.000 Latin Hypercube samples from the parameter space (range 0.001-100 for Km values and 0.001-1000 for Vmax values).

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
