I'm an 'experimentalist' (molecular microbiologist) Postdoc working on regulation and peptide signaling in Clostridium acetobutylicum. I'm also a SysMO-DB PAL (Product Application Liason) for COSMIC, working on data management including standards and integration with SysMO SEEK.
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 ...

Bacillus subtilis cells may opt to forgo normal cell division and instead form spores if subjected to certain environmental stimuli, for example nutrient deficiency or extreme temperature. The gene regulation net-work governing sporulation initiation accordingly incorporates a variety of signals and is of significant complexity. The present model (Bulletin of Mathematical Biology (2011) 73:181–211) includes four of these signals: nutrient levels, DNA damage, the products of the competence genes, ...
