Metabolic modelling, polyomics and microbial engineering

Dr Karl Burgess discusses polyomics

Glasgow University houses the Scottish Metabolomcis facility as part of Glasgow Polyomics a state of the art facility dedicated to the collection, analysis and interpretation of large datasets in genomics, proteomics and metabolomics.  The facility supports Synthetic Biology projects across Glasgow and beyond with rapid genome sequencing and analysis of metabolism and flux through pathways into high value chemicals central to activities.  Computational modelling of metabolic pathways, connected to rapid metabolomics data collection, allows inference of metabolic changes required to optimised flow of biomass into chosen chemicals, allowing choice of pathways to engineer towards production of high value chemicals.
