Within SysMo our tasks concern the effect of butanol stress, using metabolomics and transcriptomics.
I have a permanent position at the department of microbiology at the TU-München. As a microbiologist I am interested in the regulation of central metabolism in prokaryotic organisms with different types of energy metabolism such as Clostridia, Bacilli and acetic acid bacteria. Furthermore I worked as a software developer for several years in a bioinformatics company and I am very interested in bioinformatics and handling of large amounts of data.
Work in my laboratory is focussed on microbial physiology - the study of how bacteria and other microorganisms work. Although rooted in the tradition of bacterial growth and intermediary metabolism, microbial physiology now embraces molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, and indeed any discipline that can shed light on bacterial function. Much of our experimental work is conducted with Escherichia coli, the pre-eminent ‘model’ organism with unrivalled ease of genetic and physiological
I am a post-doctoral research associate working in Sheffield in the SUMO consortium. My research focuses on transcriptional regulation in E. coli, with particular emaphasis on the transcriptomic analysis of steady-state chemostat cultures using both microarray and qRT-PCR approaches.
Previous experience, especially that gained during my PhD, involved work on Salmonella physiology and lag phase growth, focusing particularly on gene-expression and transcriptional regulation. Other techniques used
I am a PhD student of the microbiology department at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München. I work at the chair of Prof. Kirsten Jung.

The main area of my expertise concerns protein sorting and secretion in Gram-positive bacteria, such as Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus.
The Gram-positive bacterium B. subtilis is well known for its high capacity to secrete proteins into the extracellular milieu, which has led to its exploitation as a "cell factory" for secreted proteins. Nevertheless, the secretion of heterologous proteins of pharmaceutical importance is frequently inefficient. This applied problem has been a major
Optimisation of Bacillus subtilis for the secretion of heterologous proteins Therapeutic proteins (including those required for experimental purposes and clinical trials) are major products of biomanufacturing processes and considerable time and expense are expended to maximise the yield and quality of proteins produced in heterologous hosts. The production host of choice is the Gram-negative bacterium Escherichia coli for which many strains and expression systems have been developed. However,
From 2005 to 2008 I was group leader at the Institute for System Dynamics at the University of Stuttgart. Since 2008 I am now Professor of Systems Biology at the University of Luxembourg.
The research of the Systems Biology Group at the University of Luxembourg is focussed in the area of experimental and theoretical systems biology. We are applying different modelling techniques (mainly ODE and logical) to biological systems to develop suitable computational models. The analysis of these models
I'm a PhD student at the lab of Prof. Dr. Jörg Stülke.
My main interest is to analyze the central metabolism of Bacillus subtilis using systems biology software.
I have developed an algorithm to find short pathways connecting sets of metabolites and I'm also involved in SubtiWiki, the wiki for all genes of Bacillus subtilis (http://subtiwiki.uni-goettingen.de)
A microbiologist with interest in microbial physiology and metabolism. Current research focuses on the biology of pathogenic and non-pathogenic clostridia, in particluar in vivo metabolism and cell-to-cell communication. Also active in metabolic engineering, using both systems and synthetic biology approaches.
A molecular microbiologist with a passion for Clostridia! Interested in the development of more effective countermeasures (diagnosis, prevention & treatment) against pathogens, specifically Clostridium difficile and Clostridium botulinum as well as the exploitation of the medical and industrial properties of beneficial strains, specifically in cancer therapy and biofuel production
My background is physics engineering & biomedical engineering. I did my PhD in Surrey on the modelling of response of mammalian cells to radiation of different qualities.
I have been working at the University of Aberdeen since November 2007 as a theoreticien research fellow of the KOSMOBAC project. We are investigating the homeostasis of ions in bacteria E. coli. I have been working at a model of the buffering capacity of the cytopplasm, arising from the presence of weak acids and bases. We have
I am a PhD student working the group of Zoya Ignatova. Cellular and extracellular changes like crowding and osmotic stress conditions play a major role in protein aggregation. A change in the cytoplasmic composition is the result of an interplay between high osmotic pressures outside the cell volume and the cellular response to it in terms of uptake of K+ and secondary organic osmolytes. My research focuses on elucidating the role of natural osmolytes (known also as chemical chaperones or compatible
I have the chair for Microbiology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München since 2004. My lab has a long-standing interest in stress response and transmembrane signal transduction in E. coli and V. harveyi. Our work is focused on the molecular mechanisms of membrane-integrated receptors, and the systems biological analysis of regulatory circuits.
I am final year PhD student in Prof Ian Booth's lab and a microbiologist by trade. I am interested in how enteric bacteria cope with stress and what systems they employ to increase their chances of survival, in particular upon methylglyoxal stress.
I am a biologist by training. My research career is focussed on the structure-function relationships of membrane transport systems in Escherichia coli. I am interested in understanding the mechanism of ion and solute transport across the membrane and how this influences bacterial cell survival. My work mainly focusses on the ligand-gated potassium efflux systems which are crucial for cell survival during electrophile exposure and the mechanosensitive channels involved in hypoosmotic stress
Bert Poolman is professor in biochemistry and program director of the Centre for Synthetic Biology. His research focuses on the elucidation of the mechanisms by which signals are transduced and small molecules are translocated across cellular membranes. Cells are reengineered for the production of correctly folded membrane proteins, and methods are developed to reconstitute complex molecular assemblies in synthetic membranes and to analyze their functional and structural properties. The in vitro
