Kooijman, S. A. L. M. (2010)
Summary of concepts of Dynamic Energy Budget Theory for metabolic organisation..
This summary skips all mathematics and empirical evidence.
A complete description can be found in
Kooijman (2010).
The book is used in this course as background material.
You can order the DEB book for 36 euro via Karin Uyldert.
Please do not forget to indicate the details of address and name of
recipient to which the book must be sent.

Guidance for finding the location: We start at 10:00 in Room T550 Vrije Universiteit, W&N Building, De Boelelaan 1081, 1081 HV Amsterdam
From Central Station Amsterdam

metro tram 51, direction Amstelveen Westwijk (16 minutes), stop at: De Boelelaan/VU

tram 5, direction Amstelveen Binnenhof (25 minutes), stop at: De Boelelaan/VU
tram 16 or 24, direction VUmc, final stop
From Station Amsterdam Zuid

express tram 51 (1 minute), direction Amstelveen Westwijk

tram 5 (1 minute), direction Amstelveen Binnenhof

it's a 10 minute walk to the VU from Station Amsterdam Zuid
Notice that we are NOT in the main building but in the W&N building
de Boelelaan entrance 1081.
Enter the main building at the
main intrance. Walk straight and leave the main building at the
backside (otherwise ask at the information desk in the main building). Enter
the W&N building at de Boelelaan 1081. Take the elevator to level 5,
and go for the Twing to room T550.

Guidance for finding the location:
Walking from the station to the Sylvius lab takes about 20 minutes.
Leave Leiden Central Station in the direction LUMCOegstgeest.
Cross the small parking lot, and then a little to the left take the road diagonally crossing the lawn (Bontuspad) to end up at a parking garage.
Follow the foot and bike path left of that garage (Hippocratespad).
After crossing an open area, with quaint little bridges on your left followed by an ugly small pub on your right, you reach a bigger road (Darwinweg).
Go right till the roundabout.
There take the road to the left (first clockwise, Zernikedreef).
After a small bit of walking take the first road to the right (Endegeesterwatering; closed of with a movable barrier for cars).
When you have come to a parking lot on your right you can cross the water to the left, to end up in front of the Sylvius building.
An alternative is not to take the rather gloomy Endegeesterwatering, but to go right only after the TNO laboratory, over a little bridge, where you already can see the lab, and follow the bike path to the right.
The lecture theatre (T 7.01) is on the seventh floor, directly to the right of the elevator.
We assume that you have read Weissing et al (2011) and Van Doorn & Weissing (2009) before you arrive.
The other papers (and some additional material) will be discussed during the session.
