The Biodegradation and Surfactants Database
Jorge dos Santos Oliveira,
INESC-ID Lisboa and IST –
The Biodegradation and Surfactants Database (BioSurfDB) is a curated relational information system currently integrating 14 metagenomes, 137 organisms, 73 biodegradation relevant genes, 62 proteins and 6 of their metabolic pathways; 29 documented bioremediation experiments, with specific pollutants treatment efficiencies by surfactant producing organisms; and a 46 biosurfactants curated list, grouped by producing organism, surfactant name and class and reference.
Our goal is to gather published and novel information on the identification and characterization of genes involved in Oil Biodegradation and Bioremediation of polluted environments and provide it in a curated way together with a series of computational tools to aid biology studies.

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.
