Project Title: Optimal control methods to explain and predict operating principles in biochemical pathways
i. Optimal control formulations in metabolic and signalling pathways: a. Links between Pareto optimality and game theory approaches considering dynamic systems; b. testing the methods developed with pathways of increasing complexity.
ii. Optimal control formulations in metabolic engineering, including multi-criteria formulations: a. Metabolic engineering exploiting large-scale kinetic models; b. testing the method with selected biotech.
