My research is intended to contribute to the elucidation of the physiological and molecular processes involved in the biofilm formation of acidophilic leaching bacteria with emphasis in their cell-cell communication mechanisms. In SysMetEx, our role is to understand biofilm formation at a microscopical and OMICS levels, in order to optimize it.

I studied Life Science (which is similar to chemical biology) at the University of Konstanz and became interested in Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and quantitative analyses during my Master's. In my PhD project I combine experimental analyses with modeling and parameter estimation approaches to quantitatively analyse regulation of apoptosis at the level of the Bcl-2 protein family.
I am a PostDoc in prof. Brautaset's lab at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. During my Ph studies D, Irla was involved in two ERA projects; SynMet and MetAPP (PAL) and currently in I am active in C1Pro project (Asset housekeeper). I have been working with methylotrophic Bacillus methanolicus since 2012, in that time I have been involved in engineering of that bacterium for production of different value-added products (amino acids and their derivatives, vitamins, and others). Furthermore, I have improved ...

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, ...
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 ...

I'm an experimentalist 'Pre-doc' (I still have to finish my PhD thesis) and my work on the COSMIC project will focus on setting up a metabolomic analysis method for Clostridium acetobutylicum. In the past I have worked on metabolic engineering of the same organism by disrupting genes to asses their impact on acid and solvent formation. I'm looking forward to joining the COSMIC web-community. It hopefully will all us to stay in touch and update each other on advances in the (computer)lab.
My research interests are in the physiology of bacteria subjected to stress. The focus of my recent research has been the structure and function of regulated transport systems and ion channels involved in cellular homeostasis. These transporters and channels respond to specific signals by a change in activity that either corrects the imposed stress or protects the cell during exposure to the stress. Our systems biology interests are in the interplay of different enzymes systems and transporters ...

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 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 ...
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'm a modeller, specialized in kinetic modeling of biochemical networks. My focus in the SysMO-LAB consortium is on creating models of Lactococcus lactis glycolysis and couple this to other related lactic acid bacteria like Streptococcus pyogenes and Enterococcus faecalis. Besides kinetic modeling, I'm also interested in combining various modeling techniques (genome-scale modeling, qualitative modeling).
