Advances in Metabolic Engineering and Bioinformatics I - Biofuels

Wednesday, November 10, 2010: 8:30 AM
255 F Room (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Description:
The main platform technology for designing biofuels-producing organisms is Metabolic Engineering. This application utilizes the full array of metabolic engineering tools including the application of pathway engineering, global cellular engineering, model-based and non-model based approaches and pathway/flux analysis to improve biofuels production. We invite talks for this session that address engineering challenges for both bioethanol and second-generation biofuels and illustrate the application of sound metabolic engineering principles to the design of biofuels-producing strains.
