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.

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

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'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

Professor in biotechnology at the Dept. Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science. I am heading "Laboratory of microbial gene technology and food microbiology" that consists of approximately 20 members (staff members, technicians,and students). During the last 20 years my research has been focused on lactica acid bacteria with a focus on bacteriocins of lactic acid bacteria.These studies have included purification and chemical and genetic characterization of such peptides followed by biosynthesis
