The course is intended for PhD students, postdocs and industrial researchers that are interested in computational aspects of metabolic engineering.

The course is intensive and will require pre-study of the material. A 2-week pre-course study schedule will be provided via the course website in due course (login information will be provided to students upon acceptance to admit the course).

Students are expected to bring their own laptop computer to be used for exercises. Should preferentially have Matlab (license required) and R (freeware) installed.
