For submitting material presented in BIOSYSTEMS meetings.
The course will introduce state-of-the-art metabolic modelling covering the full process from model reconstruction to phenotype predictions using those models. The course will focus on user-friendly tools for metabolic model reconstruction and simulation and experimental procedures to improve those models.
The course will have a five-day duration, each day divided between morning sessions with theory and afternoon sessions with practical work. The morning lectures will be guided by an expert in the field that will present background information, key concepts, computational tools, and experimental methods. The morning lecture modules will be followed by a meet the speaker time during the coffee break or lunch. Afternoon sessions will be dedicated to extensive practical work in wet and/or dry lab.
The course faculty have expertise in metabolic model reconstruction, constrained based modelling, metabolomics and experimental procedures to improve metabolic models prediction capabilities.
