Yeast Metabolic Engineering

We focus on metabolic engineering of yeast cell factories for biosustainable production of chemicals from renewable feedstocks. Our projects include both commodity chemicals, such as 3-hydroxypropionic acid for bioacrylics, and fine chemicals.

We develop genetic engineering tools, which facilitate iterative cycles of strain development, and work on general methodology for accelerated rational strain design, based on systems biology-level data (fluxome, transcriptome, metabolome, etc) and modeling.
