Knowledge discovery in environmental microbiology and physiology: problems, tools and protocols
Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica –
The present talk deals with dynamical processes observed at the organismal level in conditions close to real-world environments. The relatively small amount of data and replicates available in such experiments poses specific challenges to the design, deployment and application of integrated computational tools for data management and analysis. They are exemplified by microcosm studies of phototrophic biofilms and in-vivo circadian rhythms of body temperature in mammalians. On the basis of these experiences, I will discuss potential alterations to common protocols of interdisciplinary collaboration, which might be useful in enhancing the efficiency of computational tools in knowledge discovery.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
