Section for Network Reconstructions and in Silico Biology

This section reconstructs metabolic, protein synthesis, and regulatory networks for industry relevant microorganisms and products using bioinformatic approaches and manual curation. Constraint-based modeling approaches, reconstruction methods, and omics data integration approaches are developed to understand biological phenotypes.
The majority of activities in the section take place at the Center satellite at UCSD.

Adaptive laboratory evolution is used to study dynamics of bacterial adaptation, genetic causality, and microbial bioprocessing capabilities.
The reconstructed networks and developed methods are distributed to the Core Section to drive metabolic engineering through modeling.

The Section is located at the University of California San Diego and headed by professor Bernhard Palsson
