News from DTU

12 JUN

Postdoc, Pseudomonas and Postcards

H.C. Ørsted fellow Lorena Fernandez-Cabezon will contribute to CfB's mission of developing novel and robust bacterial cell factories for the sustainable production of chemicals.

12 JUN

Unleash the potential of data

By developing integrated software platforms the time and cost of making cell factories should be reduced.

08 JUN

Enzyme engineering contribute to production of new-to-nature glycosides

A new research group will focus on developing enzyme biocatalysts for the industrial production of natural products used as aromas, fragrances, dyes and pharmaceuticals.

08 JUN

Growth decoupling make bacteria better at producing chemicals

A set of molecular switches enable researchers to push bacteria to produce higher amounts of desired chemicals and proteins. The idea is to limit cell growth while still maintaining the cells’ ability to produce chemicals.

08 JUN

CRISPR technologies have changed the ball game

We are in the middle of a CHO revolution where gene editing can offer a significant change in biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

08 JUN

The fight to make pheromones an affordable alternative to insecticides

Scientists at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability , DTU, will replace conventional insecticides with pheromones to protect plants from pests.

21 FEB

Evolution plays many tricks against large-scale bioproduction

Ultra-deep DNA sequencing of thousands of cells uncovers many competing mechanisms of evolution as a threat to efficient scale-up of biobased chemicals production. Evolution plays an underestimated role in bioprocesses and limits yields much more than previously anticipated.   

20 FEB

Pausing evolution makes bioproduction of chemicals affordable and efficient

Circumventing evolution in cell factories can pave the way for commercializing new biobased chemicals to large-scale.

09 FEB

How can research solve some of the world's major problems?

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability will host the first “Wine and Science” (Vin & Videnskab) event of the year in collaboration with the National History Museum of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen. 

07 FEB

Scientists make it possible to rank the risk of resistance genes

A new study published in Nature Communications will help to predict antibiotic resistance evolution and thus guide future drug development.
