I am research assistant in the microbiology department at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität in Munich (München), working at the chair of Prof. Kirsten Jung. In our SysMO consortium we generate biological data and work in close cooperation with the workgroup of Dr. Andreas Kremling of the Max-Planck-Institut für Dynamik komplexer technischer Systeme in Magdeburg who performs mathematical modeling. The topic of our workpackage deals with "K+ homeostasis in Escherichia coli", wherby the K+ transporters,
