Sophie Colombié INRA Bordeaux, France Sophie Colombié received the Engineering degree in Biochemical Sciences from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA-Toulouse, France) and the Ph.D. degree in Bioprocess Engineering from the High School “Mines de Paris” in 1996 and 1999, respectively. From 1999 to 2000, Dr. Colombié, assistant professor at the University of Montpllier II worked on process design and optimization of the fermentation process leading to a high density production of bacterial spores. Since 2000, Dr. Colombié is a researcher at the National Institute of Agronomical Research (INRA). From 2000 to 2006, Dr. Colombié worked on fermentation technology in the Sciences for Enology Group, in Montpellier. The main research topics were dealing with the enological fermentation processes with new tools (such as probes on-line in bioreactors) and with modelling in collaboration with mathematicians (marketed software for alcoholic fermentation modelling (SOFA) distributed by http://www.intellioeno.com). During one year, in 2002, Dr. Colombié was a Visiting Junior Research Scientist in Sydney University, Australia. Since 2006, Dr. Colombié is researcher in the Fruit Biology Department in Bordeaux and leader of the project of the metabolic fluxes modelling in tight collaboration with bioinformaticians. Dr. Colombié’s research interests include applied microbiology, cell culture, metabolism flux analysis especially with plant cells and metabolic network analysis.
