I am a beginning PhD student at the VU in Amsterdam and study the heterogeneity of yeast cells at near zero growth conditions. I have a versatile background in Biophysics and Systems Biology.
Roles: Vice Coordinator
Expertise: genome-scale modeling, enzyme kinetics, Metabolic Pathway Analysis and Engineering Microbial Physiology Modeling of Biological Networks Industrial Systems Biotechnology White Biotech..., dynamics and control of biological networks
Since August 2008 I am professor in Systems Biology at the VU University Amsterdam. My Systems Bioinformatics group focusses on systems biology with a special focus on integrative bioinformatics. It aims at forming bridges between the classical bottom-up approaches in systems biology and the more data-driven approaches in classical bioinformatics. We combine experimental, modeling and theoretical approaches to study cellular physiology, with an emphasis on metabolic networks.
Good data and model management improves the longevity and impact of your interdisciplinary research. FAIRDOM offers software and expertise to support you in better managing your interdisciplinary life-science projects, particularly in systems and synthetic biology. If you have never heard of data and model management, or are curious about it, or you are an expert keen to exchange ideas, our user meeting is the place for you!
At our users meeting you can:
- Learn why data and model management is
Pesticides, plastics, cosmetics, electrical transformers and many other products contain Endocrine disruptors (EDCs). EDCs interfere with natural hormone functions and may cause the disease.

Microbial strains used in biotechnological industry need to produce their biotechnological products at high yield and at the same time they are desired to be robust to the intrinsic nutrient dynamics of large-scale bioreactors, most noticeably to transient limitations of carbon sources and oxygen. The engineering principles for robustness of metabolism to nutrient dynamics are however not yet well understood. The ROBUSTYEAST project aims to reveal these principles for microbial strain improvement
IMOMESIC - Integrating Modelling of Metabolism and Signalling towards an Application in Liver Cancer
One of the most challenging questions in cancer research is currently the interconnection of metabolism and signalling. An understanding of mechanisms that facilitate the physiological shift towards a proliferative metabolism in cancer cells is considered a major upcoming topic in oncology and is a key activity for future drug development. Due to the complexity of interrelations, a systems biology
Within the e:Bio - Innovationswettbewerb Systembiologie (Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)), the SulfoSYSBIOTECH consortium (10 partners), aim to unravel the complexity and regulation of the carbon metabolic network of the thermoacidophilic archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus (optimal growth at 80°C and pH 3) in order to provide new catalysts ‘extremozymes’ for utilization in White Biotechnology.
Based on the available S. solfataricus genome scale metabolic model (Ulas et al., 2012)
Systems Biology studies the properties and phenotypes that emerge from the interaction of biomolecules where such properties are not obvious from those of the individual molecules. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, mathematics, cell biology, genetics, mathematics, engineering and computer sciences, Systems Biology enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time, testable and predictive models of complex
MOSES (Micro Organism Systems biology: Energy and Saccharomyces cerevisiae) develops a new Systems Biology approach, which is called 'domino systems biology'. It uses this to unravel the role of cellular free energy ('ATP') in the control and regulation of cell function. MOSES operates though continuous iterations between partner groups through a new systems-biology driven data-management workflow. MOSES also tries to serve as a substrate for three or more other SYSMO programs.
