Model-guided Strategies for Investigating Biological Systems

Abstract: Systems Biology is relatively a new concept in which a systems level approach is needed in order to get a wholesome view of any biological system. This talk will highlight how metabolic modeling and ‘omics’ data exploration/integration can attempt to explore some of the important questions in biology ranging from stress or pathogenic response in plants to the metabolic versatility of a microbe.

Bio: Rajib Saha is an assistant professor of the Department of Chemical Engineering at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He got his PhD from the Department of Chemical Engineering at Penn State and did his postdoctoral training at the Department of Biology at Washington University in St. Louis. Currently, he leads the Systems and Synthetic Biology Laboratory at UNL that focuses on studying non-model microbes, microbial communities, plants, and human diseases. His research work is funded by NIH, NSF, Nebraska Corn Board, and Nebraska Energy Center. He has recently been awarded NIH Outstanding Early Career Investigator Award (MIRA) and NSF CAREER grant. He is also the recipient of 2020 Penn State Early Career Alumni Recognition Award.

Please note that for all in-person events, attendees must adhere to Washington University’s public health requirements, including the latest events and meetings protocol. Guests will be required to show a successful self-screening result and wear a mask at all times.
