Aim & content

The aim of the course is to provide participants with a strong primer of various (computational) aspects of metabolic engineering. In particular, the course covers the following topics:

  • Constraint-based genome-scale modelling
  • Enzyme-constrained modelling
  • Fermentation technologies
  • Proteomics technologies
  • RNAseq data generation and analysis
  • Integrative gene-expression data analysis A central question in all the activities is How can I use this in my metabolic engineering project?

Teaching format

The course is intensive and will require precourse studying of material that will be provided closer to the start date. During the course, teaching will be via lectures, while also significant time (most afternoons) is allocated for hands-on computer exercises.
