A molecular microbiologist with a passion for Clostridia! Interested in the development of more effective countermeasures (diagnosis, prevention & treatment) against pathogens, specifically Clostridium difficile and Clostridium botulinum as well as the exploitation of the medical and industrial properties of beneficial strains, specifically in cancer therapy and biofuel production
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'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).
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

I am group leader of the SDBV (Scientific Databases and Visualisation) group at the HITS gGmbH, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies.
I am interested in finding data. Starting with my master's thesis I have always worked on how to store data in a way that you can find it, and how to make sense out of data that has been stored.
Within FAIRDOM I find interesting to help people to store their data in a way that they make sense even after years.
I am a research associate in the department of computer science at the University of Sheffield since January 2008. My research is primarily involved with using agent-based modelling techniques and mathematical modelling techniques to model Escherichia coli K-12 Respiratory Adaptation. My research interests also include, development of workflows to analyze Microarray Data.
Post doc. in the SysMO-LAB2 project from August 2010. I work at Nofima and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) at Ås, Norway. My focus in SysMO-LAB2 will be on four Lactobacillus plantarum strains, diversity analysis, omics-technologies, genome scale modelling.
Background: Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology June 2010, where I worked with Lactobacillus sakei, metabolism and diversity studies.
I got my Master’s Degree in Biomathematics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology 2007 at Novosibirsk State University (NSU). I am working at Computer Proteomics Laboratory, Institute of Cytology and Genetics SB RAS. We develope computer system to analyze the coding features of functional sites by taking into account the exon structure of the gene, to detect the exons involved in shuffling in protein
evolution, also to design protein-engineering experiments. Tools developed - SitEx http://www-bionet
Projects: HUMET Startup
Institutions: European Institute for Systems Biology and Medicine
Senior Researcher at the European Institute for Systems Biology and Medicine (EISBM), Lyon, France
The Disease Maps Project: a community effort for comprehensive representation of disease mechanisms and ‘omics data interpretation in connection to EU projects U-BIOPRED (Unbiased BIOmarkers in Prediction of REspiratory Disease outcomes) and eTRIKS (european TRanslational Information and Knowledge Management Services) funded by IMI (Innovative Medicines Initiative).
I finished my biotechnology studies at Pablo de Olavide University (Seville) in 2010 and after that got a master degree in microbiology (Granada University). During my PhD (2010-2014) at Estación Experimental del Zaidín (Granada, Spain), I focused on the study of the biosynthesis of antibiotic compounds and the signaling mechanisms underlying antibiotic resistance in Pseudomonas putida from a transcriptomic and molecular point of view.
