Joint NIHS – EPFL mini Symposium ‘From Single Genome To Metagenomic Metabolic Modelling’

Lausanne, Switzerland  -  A joint NIHS - EPFL mini symposium will take place at the EPFL Campus on Monday January 26th 2015, organised and hosted by Peter Sperisen from the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences (Gastro Instinal Health & Microbiome) and by Prof Vassily Hatzimanikatis from the EPFL (Laboratory of Computational Systems Biotechnology). The theme of the symposium is mechanistic modelling around the triad “microbiota – host – nutrition”. The talks will range from single cell modelling over multiscale modelling to modelling microbial communities alone or in connection with the host.

The speakers and the titles are:

  • Prof Costas Maranas (Department of Chemical Engineering, Penn State University, USA): Reconstruction, Analysis, & Redesign of Metabolic Pathways

  • Prof Vassily Hatzimanikatis (Laboratory of Computational Systems Biotechnology, EPFL, Switzerland): Towards thermodynamic and kinetic metabolic models

  • Prof Jens Nielsen (Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden): Prospects for Systems Biology and Modeling of the Gut Microbiome

  • Prof Jason Papin (Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Virginia, USA): Multiscale metabolic models

  • Prof Uwe Sauer (Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zürich, Switzerland): Metabolomics for Community metabolic models

  • Prof Ines Thiele (Molecular Systems Physiology Group, University of Luxemburg, Luxemburg): Connecting metagenome scale metabolic models and Human metabolic models

  • Prof Joel Dore (INRA, France): Microbiota in Health and Disease
