Bacterial Cell Factory Optimization

The group focuses on developing tools for production of biochemicals by engineering of novel biosynthetic pathways in bacterial production organisms through metabolic engineering, systems and synthetic biology. The group also focuses on utilisation of alternative carbon sources in order to decrease the production cost of bulk biochemicals. 

The main focus is:

  • Folding of heterologous proteins in E. coli 
  • Utilization of alternative carbon sources 
  • Production of value added biochemicals
