Our intention is to deliver all Seminars in person, we will follow University Covid Guidance on this. Seminars are aimed mainly at MPhil CompBio students, but are open to anyone who wishes to attend by pre-booking with the Administrator.

Our planet harbours trillions of microbial species. Most live in multi-species communities that play essential roles in practically all ecosystems, ranging from ocean to the gut. Metagenomics is now providing unprecedented insights into the diversity of these communities. The next challenge is to decipher the interactions underlying the dynamics and function of these communities. I will introduce principles and tools of genome-scale metabolic modelling, and illustrate how these can be applied at meta-genome scale to elucidate cooperative and competitive interactions that shape microbial communities.

This talk is part of the Computational and Systems Biology Seminar Series 2021 - 2022 series.
