773 Advances in Metabolic Engineering of Photosynthetic/Non-Model Organisms

Friday, November 18, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Continental 7 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Non-traditional host 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 synthetic biology/molecular tool development, metabolic flux analysis, construction and analysis of genome scale models, application of ‘omics’ techniques, and production of novel products through pathway and genome engineering.
