Thelmo A. Lu-Chau is chemical engineer by the Universidad Nacional de Trujillo (Perú) and PhD in Chemical Engineering by the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (USC, Spain). He is currently working as Associate Researcher to the Dept. Chemical Engineering at the USC. His research areas include the production of biofuels (ethanol, butanol) and biopolymers (PHA) from lignocellulosic biomass and cereals, the production of enzymes (glucanases and ligninolytic enzymes) by natural and genetically
I am assistant professor at the Laboratory of Microbiology and my interest is in the area of molecular microbiology. Research focuses on the analysis of the metabolism of anaerobic fermentative bacteria and archaea, especially with respect to biofuel production (hydrogen, butanol). Within SysMo our tasks concern the effect of butanol stress, using metabolomics and transcriptomics.

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 topic of our workpackage deals with "K+ homeostasis in Escherichia coli". In special I'm working on the sensor kinase KdpD that controls together with the response regulator KdpE the expression of the high-affinity K+ uptake system KdpFABC. The yet not fully understood molecular mechanism of stimulus perception and signal transduction is of particular
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.

I obtained my PhD in 1989 at the Free University (Amsterdam) on a research project in which microbial physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology were combined. Subsequently I spent 3 years abroad, 2.5 years of which as EMBO fellow at the EMBL (Heidelberg, Germany) where I worked on protein engineering and protein crystallization. I returned to Amsterdam as KNAW fellow for 3 years, during which I worked on protein analysis and pathway engineering. In 1995 I was appointed as group leader
Professor in Jinan University, Guangzhou, China.
My research interest is in the modeling of translation. Connecting various processes in translation, we can investigate the impact of different factors on protein biosynthesis and biogenesis in genome-wide scale. This may reveal various general mechanisms on control level of gene expression and folding efficiency regulation in different growth conditions.

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

My research activities has been to use mathematical models and Computational Biology to answer biological questions, intertwining in silico and experimental methods at all stages. I have a strong interest in exploring the interfaces between Fundamental Biology and bona fide Engineering, specifically in the realm of environmental and industrial problems. The research goals of my group are to contribute to the elucidation of mechanisms underlying basic cellular processes, evolution and ecological
