    Phenotype-based cell-specific metabolic modeling reveals metabolic liabilities of cancer

    Keren Yizhak et al.
    Genome-scale metabolic modeling of individual cancer cells and healthy human cells identifies specific and selective metabolic vulnerabilities.
  1. Modelling metabolism: an interview with Keren Yizhak

    Keren Yizhak majored in computational biology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and is currently a PhD student at the School of Computer Science at Tel-Aviv University, where she uses computational techniques to study biological phenomena, focusing on the metabolic changes that occur in cells during cancer and ageing. She will move to the Broad Institute at Harvard and MIT in March 2015 to begin her first postdoctoral position. Her main interest outside of science is ballet dancing, which she finds a source of inspiration and discipline.

    Quantitative determinants of aerobic glycolysis identify flux through the enzyme GAPDH as a limiting step

    Alexander A Shestov et al.
    A new computational model of the Warburg Effect reveals that the rate-limiting step of glycolysis is variable, identifies new control mechanisms, and could help to predict the responses to targeting glycolysis to treat cancer.

    Biomolecular interactions modulate macromolecular structure and dynamics in atomistic model of a bacterial cytoplasm

    Isseki Yu et al.
    Crowding and metabolites in a simulated cellular environment alter protein conformations, modulate interactions of functionally related proteins, and lead to significant dynamic heterogeneity.

    Reconfiguration of functional brain networks and metabolic cost converge during task performance

    Andreas Hahn et al.
    Cognitive performance is supported by symbiotic metabolic and neuro-vascular responses in task-specific brain networks.

    Saccharomyces cerevisiae goes through distinct metabolic phases during its replicative lifespan

    Simeon Leupold et al.
    With replicative age, S. cerevisiae shifts from a fermentative towards an unusual respiratory metabolism, accompanied by a decrease in growth and glucose uptake rate.

    Drosophila macrophages switch to aerobic glycolysis to mount effective antibacterial defense

    Gabriela Krejčová et al.
    Activated Drosophila macrophages undergo transient metabolic remodeling towards Hypoxia inducible factor 1 α-driven aerobic glycolysis, a program that induces systemic metabolic changes and is crucial for resistance to infection.

    Calibration and analysis of genome-based models for microbial ecology

    Stilianos Louca, Michael Doebeli
    A novel computation tool for microbial community modeling predicts the evolution and diversification of E. coli in laboratory evolution experiments and gives insight into the underlying metabolic processes.
