2018 Frontiers in Psychology  
Secondly, we conducted photo elicitation interviews (PEIs) to assess and differentiate children's attachment figures (Becke and Bongard, 2018a) .  ...  Finally, these studies on middle childhood are methodologically dominated by adult researchers and their own reflections on attachment, limiting the children's own contribution (Becke and Bongard, 2018a  ...

Metabolic engineering with multi-objective optimization of kinetic models

Alejandro F. Villaverde, Sophia Bongard, Klaus Mauch, Eva Balsa-Canto, Julio R. Banga
2016 Journal of Biotechnology  
Kinetic models have a great potential for metabolic engineering applications. They can be used for testing which genetic and regulatory modifications can increase the production of metabolites of interest, while simultaneously monitoring other key functions of the host organism. This work presents a methodology for increasing productivity in biotechnological processes exploiting dynamic models. It uses multi-objective dynamic optimization to identify the combination of targets (enzymatic

The capabilities of the approach are demonstrated on a realistic and computationally challenging application: a large-scale metabolic model of Chinese Hamster Ovary cells (CHO), which are used for antibody production in a fed-batch process. The proposed methodology manages to provide a sustained and robust growth in CHO cells, increasing productivity while simultaneously increasing biomass production, product titer, and keeping the concentrations of lactate and ammonia at low values. The approach presented here can be used for optimizing metabolic models by finding the best combination of targets and their optimal level of up/down-regulation. Furthermore, it can accommodate additional trade-offs and constraints with great flexibility.

Using Photo Elicitation to Introduce a Network Perspective on Attachment During Middle Childhood

A consensus approach for estimating the predictive accuracy of dynamic models in biology

Alejandro F. Villaverde, Sophia Bongard, Klaus Mauch, Dirk Müller, Eva Balsa-Canto, Joachim Schmid, Julio R. Banga
2015 Computer Methods and Programs in Biomedicine  
Mathematical models that predict the complex dynamic behaviour of cellular networks are fundamental in systems biology, and provide an important basis for biomedical and biotechnological applications. However, obtaining reliable predictions from large-scale dynamic models is commonly a challenging task due to lack of identifiability. The present work addresses this challenge by presenting a methodology for obtaining high-confidence predictions from dynamic models using time-series data. First,

Next, an ensemble of models with different parameterizations is constructed and calibrated. Finally, the ensemble is used for assessing the reliability of model predictions by defining a measure of convergence of model outputs (consensus) that is used as an indicator of confidence. We report results of computational tests carried out on a metabolic model of Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells, which are used for recombinant protein production. Using noisy simulated data, we find that the aggregated ensemble predictions are on average more accurate than the predictions of individual ensemble models. Furthermore, ensemble predictions with high consensus are statistically more accurate than ensemble predictions with large variance. The procedure provides quantitative estimates of the confidence in model predictions and enables the analysis of sufficiently complex networks as required for practical applications.

BioPreDyn-bench: benchmark problems for kinetic modelling in systems biology [article]

2014 pre-print
Dynamic modelling is one of the cornerstones of systems biology. Many research efforts are currently being invested in the development and exploitation of large-scale kinetic models. The associated problems of parameter estimation (model calibration) and optimal experimental design are particularly challenging. The community has already developed many methods and software packages which aim to facilitate these tasks. However, there is a lack of suitable benchmark problems which allow a fair and
more » ... systematic evaluation and comparison of these contributions. Here we present BioPreDyn-bench, a set of challenging parameter estimation problems which aspire to serve as reference test cases in this area. This set comprises six problems including medium and large-scale kinetic models of the bacterium E. coli, baker's yeast S. cerevisiae, the vinegar fly D. melanogaster, Chinese Hamster Ovary cells, and a generic signal transduction network. The level of description includes metabolism, transcription, signal transduction, and development. For each problem we provide (i) a basic description and formulation, (ii) implementations ready-to-run in several formats, (iii) computational results obtained with specific solvers, (iv) a basic analysis and interpretation. This suite of benchmark problems can be readily used to evaluate and compare parameter estimation methods. Further, it can also be used to build test problems for sensitivity and identifiability analysis, model reduction and optimal experimental design methods. The suite, including codes and documentation, can be freely downloaded from http://www.iim.csic.es/%7egingproc/biopredynbench/.

The political choreography of the Sophia robot: beyond robot rights and citizenship to political performances for the social robotics market

The company that made the robot, Hanson Robotics, has touted Sophia as the future of artificial intelligence (AI).  ...  We argue that the media performances of the Sophia robot were choreographed to advance specific political interests.  ...  The phenomenological notion of 'embodied intelligence' has begun to resonate in the field of robotics research (e.g., Pfeifer and Bongard 2006) .  ...
