Bio-map charts production routes for industrial chemicals

Researchers now present a very detailed map on metabolic engineering routes for the production of a wide range of sustainable chemicals. This map will ease the construction of engineered microorganisms that can produce bio-chemicals. The research is published in Nature Catalysis.

Creating flavours and fragrances from “shiki” cell factories

A big new EU project called SHIKIFACTORY100 aims at producing more than 100 high value compounds and chemicals such as flavours and fragrances biologically. This will be done using genetically optimized cells, designed to produce the desired compounds through the cellular pathway called ‘shikimate’.

Tampering with cellular fats holds great promise

Researchers have found a way to engineer the lipid composition of cell membranes. The method described in Science makes it easier to investigate how cells are regulated by their membrane composition. This could lead to optimized cell factories and better understanding of the role of lipids in metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes...
