Seminar on Bioinformatics by Pavel Pevzner

Seminar on Bioinformatics by Pavel Pevzner | iBB | Scoop.it

Pavel Pevzner will be giving a talk entitled "Bioinformatics: a Servant or the Queen of Molecular Biology?", Thursday the 19th september at 14:00 h (meeting room, Main Building, Alameda campus). In his talk, Pavel will argue that bioinformatics is rapidly turning into the queen of molecular biology, illustrating this view by showing how recent computational developments brought down biological dogmas. In the second part of the talk, he will discuss a century-old dogma about the traditional classroom and describe the recent efforts to repudiate it using Intelligent Tutoring Systems. Pavel Pevzner is a Ronald R. Taylor Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and Director of the NIH Center for Computational Mass Spectrometry at University of California, San Diego.

Seminar on Engineering Yeast Metabolism for Bioethanol Production by Jack Pronk | iBB | Scoop.it

Prof. Jack Pronk will be giving a talk entitled " Engineering of carbon and redox metabolism in yeast for bioethanol production", Thursday the 16th February, at 13:30 h in room QA02.1, South Tower, IST (Alameda). Jack Pronk is a full professor at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). Jack’s fascination for micro-organisms is inspired by their applications in industry. In his research, he aims to understand and improve microbial performance by integrating quantitative physiology, genomics, metabolic and evolutionary engineering. Highlights include the successful engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for pentose fermentation (now commercialized by DSM) and, recently, the functional expression of a pyruvate-dehydrogenase complex in the yeast cytosol, which opened up a new, energy-efficient pathway towards acetyl-coenzyme A as a key metabolic precursor.
