268 Advances in Metabolic Engineering

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Continental 6 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
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.
