New Predictive model for the regulation of methanogenesis in M. maripaludis
Scientists at ISB and University of Washington led a multi-institutional effort to generate the first predictive model for gene regulation of methanogenesis in a hydrogenotrophic methanogen, Methanococcus maripaludis.

Publication: Effects of H2 and formate on growth yield and regulation of methanogenesis in Methanococcus maripaludis.
Here we report that during continuous culture of Methanococcus maripaludis under defined nutrient conditions, growth yields relative to methane production decreased markedly with either H(2) excess or formate excess.

Publication: Metallochaperones Regulate Intracellular Copper Levels
This model accurately recapitulates known dynamical properties of the Cu circuit and predicts that intracellular Cu-buffering emerges as a consequence of the interplay of paralogous metallochaperones that traffic and allocate Cu to distinct targets.
