Phd Thesis: Modelling redox regulations in yeasts using comparative genomics and metabolomics.
I have keen interest in the area of systems biology which bridges mainly biology, computer science and mathematics to understand functioning of the cell in a broad spectrum. My main focus is to elucidate and model genetic and metabolic networks and pathways in yeast particularly.
For my Phd studies. I will employ experimental techniques and computational modelling approaches to elucidate how core redox biochemistry regulates cellular dynamics. Yeast will be continuously cultured and samples taken for metabolite analysis is perturbed and non perturbed states. From these data we will attempt to construct metabolic network(s) that encapsulate these changes and elucidate how changes in core redox influence the network.
