I am a Postdoc at Keith Matthews lab in the Institute of Immunology and Infection Research, Edinburgh University. As part of the SilicoTryp project we are in charge of performing Targeted disruption and Overexpression of critical enzymes of Trypanosoma brucei redox metabolism enzymes and developmental perturbations to provide part of the necessary data for the construction of the model. Also generate consistent samples, so that data can be integrated and quantification results are guarateed to ...

The Disease Maps Project is designed as a large-scale community effort. It is a network of groups that work together in order to better understand disease mechanisms. The project exchanges best practices, share information, develop tools to make it easier for all the involved groups to achieve their goals.

Plant development is strongly influenced by external light cues, yet we know very little of how this is mediated at a molecular level. This BBSRC funded project seeks to determine how phytochrome light receptor signalling connects with the developmental pathways to control plant architecture.

FAIRDOM is establishing a support and service network for European Systems Biology. FAIRDOM is a joint action of ERA-Net ERASysAPP and European Research Infrastructure ISBE to establish a data and model management service facility for Systems Biology. Our prime mission is to support researchers, students, trainers, funders and publishers by enabling Systems Biology projects to make their Data, Operating procedures and Models, Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).

SysMO is a European transnational funding and research initiative on "Systems Biology of Microorganisms".
The goal pursued by SysMO was to record and describe the dynamic molecular processes going on in unicellular microorganisms in a comprehensive way and to present these processes in the form of computerized mathematical models.
Systems biology will raise biomedical and biotechnological research to a new quality level and contribute markedly to progress in understanding. Pooling European research ...

Here we share resources and best practices to develop a disease map for COVID-19. The project is progressing as a broad community-driven effort. We aim to establish a knowledge repository on virus-host interaction mechanisms specific to the SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 Disease Map is an assembly of molecular interaction diagrams established based on literature evidence.
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 ...
For plants, light is a signal that carries information about the environment, and a source of energy for photosynthesis. PHYTOCAL focuses on the interaction between phytochrome signalling and photosynthesis, and seeks to understand fundamental processes that make carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) resources available for plant growth. These unexplored connections underlie biomass production and plasticity, which contribute significantly to yield variability in the field.
What is PlaSMo? PlaSMo stands for Plant Systems-biology Modelling Ensuring the achievements of yesterday's Mathematical Modellers will be available for the Systems Biologists of tomorrow.
To identify plant mathematical models useful to the UK plant systems biology community, which are currently in a variety of legacy formats and in danger of being lost
To represent these models in a declarative XML-based format, which is closer to the systems biology standard SBML To evaluate the behaviour ...
EU FP7 collaborative project TiMet, award number 245143. Funded 2010-2015. "TiMet assembles world leaders in experimental and theoretical plant systems biology to advance understanding of the regulatory interactions between the circadian clock and plant metabolism, and their emergent effects on whole-plant growth and productivity."
"Systems Understanding of Microbial Oxygen responses" (SUMO) investigates how Escherichia coli senses oxygen, or the associated changes in oxidation/reduction balance, via the Fnr and ArcA proteins, how these systems interact with other regulatory systems, and how the redox response of an E. coli population is generated from the responses of single cells. There are five sub-projects to determine system properties and behaviour and three sub-projects to employ different and complementary modelling ...
The SilicoTryp project aims at the creation of a “Silicon Trypanosome”, a comprehensive, experiment-based, multi-scale mathematical model of trypanosome physiology. Trypanosomes are blood-stream parasites transmitted by tsetse flies; they cause African sleeping sickness in humans and livestock. Currently available drugs have severe side effects, and the parasites are rapidly developing resistance. In this project, we collect a wide range of new experimental data on the parasite in its various ...
