I've become a SysMO DB PAL for MOSES project in 2007 being a post-doc in lab of Prof. Matthias Reuss at University of Stuttgart. In the MOSES project, our major efforts were in the experimental data acquisition for dynamic model of primary carbon and anaerobic energy metabolism in yeast. The model implements prediction of perturbations of two types: glucose pulse and temperature jump. We implement “stimulus-response” methodology for the unraveling the dynamic structure of the network and to
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.
Martijn Bekker (1979) was born in Amstelveen (The Netherlands). He started his studies in biology in 1997 at the University of Amsterdam, and graduated in 2003 with specializations in molecular microbiology and in immunology. The internships during his undergraduate studies were carried out in the labs of Prof. dr. B. Oudega (VU, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and Prof. dr. F. Heffron (OHSU, Portland, Oregon, USA).
He continued with his graduate studies in 2003 in the Laboratory for Molecular Microbial
