Special Issue "Dynamic Approaches to Metabolic Modeling and Metabolic Engineering"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2014)
Processes (ISSN 2227-9717), an international open access journal on processes in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and related engineering research fields, is published by MDPI online quarterly. For more information, please refer to Processes' Aims and Scope at: http://www.mdpi.com/journal/processes/about. This Special Issue of Processes is expected to gather contributions in the general area of Dynamic Approaches to Metabolic Modeling and Metabolic Engineering.
Overall, this Special Issue is dedicated to applying mathematical models towards the translation of fundamental theory to design, optimize and control engineering systems. Specifically, it aims to promote the use of dynamic modeling from metabolic networks to metabolic engineering, then further to enable the design of organisms to maximize productivity.
While successful case studies will be of special interest, we also welcome papers that deliberate on the methodology, irrespective of whether the stipulated engineering goals have been reached successfully.
