Fungal Cell Factories

Former organisational unit. 13/10/2015. Taken over by Yeast Cell Factories


Organisation profile

Within this section, that is located at Chalmers University of Technology, we are developing novel technologies to advance the development of yeast cell factories. This involves:

  1. the construction of detailed metabolic models,
  2. the development of novel synthetic biology tools that will allow for rapid reconstruction of heterologous pathways in yeast,
  3. development of yeast cells with an expanded substrate range, i.e. pentoses and carbohydrate polymers, and
  4. advancement of a pipeline for use of directed evolution to identify metabolic engineering targets. 

The section is headed by Professor Jens Nielsen.
