EMBL is Europe's laboratory for the life sciences. The Patil group uses a combination of modelling, bioinformatics, and experimental approaches to study metabolic networks and how they are controlled.
EMBL is an international organisation employing almost 2000 people in five European locations with headquarters in Heidelberg, Germany. Its mandates include the advance of European basic science, particularly in Molecular Biology, the development of advanced technology and instruments, the provision of training and services to the member states as well as technology transfer.
The participating PI, K.R. Patil, is a group leader in the Structural and Computational Biology Unit (one out of eight at EMBL, ca. 150 people) located in Heidelberg. The group is home to ~15 talented young scientists covering both computational and experimental tools needed to design and build cell factories. The past achievements in the relevant area include first eukaryotic example - vanillin production - for cell factory improvement using genome-scale metabolic models.
