257 Advances in Metabolic Engineering and Bioinformatics for Biofuels

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 12:30 PM
Westmoreland Central (Westin )
Description:
The main platform technology for engineering biofuel-producing organisms is Metabolic Engineering. This application utilizes the full array of metabolic engineering tools, including pathway engineering, global cellular engineering, model-based and non-model based approaches, and pathway/flux analysis to improve biofuel production. We invite talks for this session that address engineering challenges for both bioethanol and next-generation biofuels and illustrate the application of sound metabolic engineering principles to the design and creation of efficient biofuel-producing strains.
