Systems biology focuses on a holistic approach to study complex interactions in a biological system through the combination of numerical models and system-wide observations. We contribute to the development of microbial systems biology research in terms of method development as well as applications to study natural and biotechnological microbial systems. We focus on the question of how chemical energy availability shapes microbial communities in hydrothermal settings and in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS).
