Talk description: We are interested in understanding organizational principles of metabolic regulation, and how that regulates cell states. In particular, using simple yeasts, we have asked how self-organizing biochemical/metabolic processes can enable new resource production, creating new environments that allow different (heterogeneous) cell states to co-exist in seemingly uniform environments. Our interdisciplinary approach goes from systems level analysis to molecular mechanisms, and integrates mathematical models where appropriate.
