23 Metabolic Engineering of Photosynthetic/Non-Model Organisms

Sunday, November 8, 2015: 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
150G (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Non-traditional hosts systems provide diverse genetic backgrounds and metabolic capabilities, which can serve as advantageous production platforms for a wide range of pharmaceuticals, biochemicals and biofuels. This session will focus on metabolic engineering efforts in non-model organisms (e.g. plants, fungi, algae, cyanobacteria, archaea, and non-model bacteria). Sample topic areas of interest include molecular tool development, metabolic flux analysis, construction and analysis of genome scale models, application of ‘omics’ techniques, and production of novel products through pathway engineering.
