Now that several genomes have been sequenced, functional genomics is getting more attention. Cell function and pathology are directly reflected in metabolite levels and fluxes in metabolic pathways. Large-scale parallel measurements of metabolites and their intracellular levels are captured under the term 'metabolomics' and large-scale quantitation of metabolic fluxes is termed 'fluxomics'. This project develops bioinformatics methods and tools for these new scientific fields.
- Metabolic pathway alignment (M-Pal) reveals diversity and alternatives in conserved networks
- Robust modelling, measurement and analysis of human and animal metabolic systems
- Automated procedure for candidate compound selection in GC-MS metabolomics based on prediction of Kovats retention index
- M-PAS: a comprehensive and flexible metabolic pathway alignment and scoring method
- Metabolic pathway alignment between species using a comprehensive and flexible similarity measure
