Integrated Multi-omics Profiling and Systems Modeling for Characterizing and Designing Microbial, Plant and Mammalian Cells

Abstract: 
We have recently established knowledge-based “Systems and synthetic biotechnology” platform where multi-omics data-driven and hypothetical model-driven approaches can be integrated to study the cell growth characteristics under various conditions, enhance the cellular performance/properties and design novel biological products or functions. In this talk, several applications of the framework to microbial, plant and mammalian systems will be presented and current challenges and issues will be discussed.
