This workshop “Fluxomics and metabolomics of plant and microbial Systems” is aimed at providing researchers and scholars hands-on exposure in fluxomics and metabolomics that has applications in agriculture, health, environment and industry. While the metabolite profiling and metabolomics allow one to capture differences among phenotypes and identifying biomarkers, fluxomics measures system wide in-vivo reaction rates (i.e fluxes) via pathways that provide critical insights into understanding the cellular metabolism and its physiology, thereby defining precise phenotypes. Recent progress has shown that the flux maps help in both understanding metabolic regulations as well as in rational metabolic engineering of cellular systems and it is also anticipated to play a significant role in synthetic biology in the coming decade. The flux maps define precise metabolic phenotypes, an outcome of interplay between genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and other associated regulations with the cellular environment. It is often perceived that defining precise metabolic phenotypes is challenging. With the emergence of advanced analytical platforms (GC-MS, LC-MS/MS, NMR) and metabolic modelling strategies the metabolic analysis including profiling and flux analysis in cellular systems is feasible.
The main objective is to assist current and next generation Metabolic Systems Biology scientists by providing hands-on exposure to the fundamentals, challenges and modern research strategies in deciphering Plant and microbial metabolism using advanced -omics workflows. The talks and interactions with the pioneering experts from the University of Oxford, IIT Mandi and other scientists will provide the right platform to the scholars, postdocs and faculty interested in metabolomics and fluxomics. The workshop covers
• Key note talks by experts from the University of Oxford, IIT Mandi and others
• Measuring metabolites and metabolomics – Hands-on sessions (Day 1)
• Fluxomics - constraint-based FBA (Day 2)
• Fluxomics – 13C MFA (Day 3)
• Recent Advances in metabolism (Day 4)
