(bio)process modelling, ecological dymamic modeling, systems biology


ESR2 Objectives

The objective is to develop a dynamic ecological model to describe the interactions between microorganisms through cheese production. The following sub-objectives are to be accomplished: (1) the modelling at the ecological level accounting for interactions among microorganisms and environmental components, (2) the modelling at the metabolite-mediated level accounting for explicit descriptions of substrates and products and environmental components, (3) the formulation and solution of dynamic optimization problems devoted to maximize cheese quality (
