Metabolic engineering is the targeted improvement of the cellular metabolic phenotype using recombinant DNA technology. This session emphasizes pathway-level engineering; approaches are typically mostly experimental, and are focused on a specific pathway and metabolites rather than metabolism as a whole. Example areas include strategies to enhance the production of natural products, pathway engineering for the production of novel products, and the application of evolutionary techniques for phenotype development. Abstracts describing new developments in these topics are sought, and the session is open to papers focused on any type of organism.
