Within the e:Bio - Innovationswettbewerb Systembiologie (Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)), the SulfoSYSBIOTECH consortium (10 partners), aim to unravel the complexity and regulation of the carbon metabolic network of the thermoacidophilic archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus (optimal growth at 80°C and pH 3) in order to provide new catalysts ‘extremozymes’ for utilization in White Biotechnology.
Based on the available S. solfataricus genome scale metabolic model (Ulas et al., 2012)
MOSES (Micro Organism Systems biology: Energy and Saccharomyces cerevisiae) develops a new Systems Biology approach, which is called 'domino systems biology'. It uses this to unravel the role of cellular free energy ('ATP') in the control and regulation of cell function. MOSES operates though continuous iterations between partner groups through a new systems-biology driven data-management workflow. MOSES also tries to serve as a substrate for three or more other SYSMO programs.
Systems analysis of process-induced stresses: towards a quantum increase in process performance of Pseudomonas putida as the cell factory of choice for white biotechnology.
The specific goal of this project is to exploit the full biotechnological efficacy of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 by developing new optimization strategies that increase its performance through a systems biology understanding of key metabolic and regulatory parameters that control callular responses to key stresses generated
The principles of Stealthy Engineering (Adamczyk et al.: Biotechnology Journal 2012; 7(7):877-83) are illustrated in this model by emulating a cross engineering intervention between L. lactis and S. cerevisiae.
The case study consists of replacing the native glucose uptake system of L. lactis with that native to the yeast S. cerevisiae. A modified version of Hoefnagel et al.’s model of L. lacrtis’ central metabolism was used as starting point. The total functional replacement of the PTS with the
