722 Advances in Metabolic Engineering

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
150D/E (Salt Palace Convention Center)

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 improving production of a metabolite. Abstracts describing new developments in these topics are sought, and the session is open to papers focused on any type of organism, microbial consortium, or cell-free system.
