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
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.
The principles of Stealthy Engineering (Adamczyk et al.: Biotechnology Journal 2012; 7(7):877-83) are illustrated in this model by emulating a cross engineering intervention between L. lactis and S. cerevisiae.
The case study consists of replacing the native glucose uptake system of L. lactis with that native to the yeast S. cerevisiae. A modified version of Hoefnagel et al.’s model of L. lacrtis’ central metabolism was used as starting point. The total functional replacement of the PTS with the
