This is the third C1net conference, and focuses on Chemical production from C1gases by gas fermentation. More information available here.
C1net: Metabolic Modelling Workshop 4, Park Hotel, Nottingham, 15 - 19 January 2018
Redirecting an organism’s metabolism towards novel products raises a number of design issues. What is the impact of the new pathway on the cell's energy and redox metabolism? Can the precursor and coenzyme requirements be satisfied? Should some parts of the metabolic network be blocked off to ensure the most efficient routes to the product are favoured? Answering these questions needs tools that can compute and compare feasible routes through the cell's metabolic network, as well as methods for defining and representing the metabolic network in a way the tools can use. This is the domain of structural analysis of metabolism, and techniques such as elementary modes analysis and flux balance analysis. This combined theoretical and practical course will explain the theory behind these techniques and give hands-on experience of building metabolic network models and calculating feasible and optimal routes through them. It will be presented by David Fell and his colleagues in the Cell Systems Modelling Group of Oxford Brookes University. It covers the same area as the previous C1net Modelling Workshop 1 and 3, but is complementary to Workshop 2 on kinetic models.
Attendance is by invitation after submitting the application form and is only open to signed-up members of C1NET or one of the other BBSRC NIBB. Application opens 1 October 2017 and closes 30 November 2017 (or earlier if full). Places are limited, so apply early to avoid disappointment. Successful applicants will be notified by 7 December 2017 at the latest.
