Optimization of cellular metabolism

Cellular metabolism is one of the most measured phenomena and can be modeled by many formalisms, approaches and their combinations. We use just some of them.

The performance of fermentation and cultivation processes depend on many aspects. We deal with the metabolic engineering of an organism as well as with modeling of fermentation or cultivation process.


Models can help in different ways. Models can be used to find the indicators of biotechnological process that can be used by the control system. Measurements of simple parameters or their combinations of them can be very informative if the flux distribution variability of indicator is interconnected with the control target. Of course, interconnections can be also designed if needed.

There are many other ways how different types of metabolism modelling can be used in the control of biotechnological processes. Our collaboration with bioreactor producer JSC “Biotehniskais centrs” enable good insight in the practical topics of biotechnology.
