Winter Class ‘Modeling Growth and Metabolism of Micro organisms’

WhenWhere
Thursday 15 February, 2018 - Friday 16 February, 2018 Minnaert building, Utrecht, Netherlands

In a string of recent, highly influential papers, mathematical models went hand in hand with experiments to greatly increase our understanding of the growth and metabolism of microorganisms. Coarse-grained mathematical models were used to describe steady-state growth at the population level under a wide range of external conditions. Interestingly, at the same time models were developed to describe the stochastic nature of cellular growth. Owing to their quantitative success and their predictive power, mathematical models have become of great importance in cellular biology. In this Winter Class we will therefore discuss a number of influential mathematical modeling techniques and their applications to growth and metabolism. Subjects and techniques covered will include: coarse-grained modeling, Flux Balance Analysis, stochastic calculations.
