Workshop "Metabolism in Systems Biology"

Dates : 2016 Nov. 24th, 10:00 -- Nov. 25th 16:00

Place : Lille University, Cité scientifique, Villeneuve d'Ascq.

Organization :
BioComputing group of the computer science lab CRIStAL of the university of Lille
(Cedric Lhoussaine, Joachim Niehren and Cristian Versari)

Topic of the workshop:

Given that metabolism is a central aspect of all living systems, the domain of metabolomics has become a large research domain in molecular biology. In the last 10 years, this has raised increasing interest in the formal modeling and analysis of metabolic networks. A typical example is flux balance analysis, but also the control of the metabolic fluxes has become subject to formal modeling and prediction approaches. The objective of the workshop is therefore to bring together researchers from computer science, biology, chemistry, and mathematics, who are working on different aspects of the modeling of metabolic networks.
