Session 12: Metabolic Engineering for Fuels and Chemicals II
Tuesday, July 26, 2016: 8:00 AM-11:30 AM
Waterbury, 2nd Fl (Sheraton New Orleans)
Priti Pharkya - Genomatica, Inc. and Fuzhong Zhang - Washington University in St. Louis
Metabolic engineering is being applied to increasingly diverse applications in a whole spectrum of organisms that have not been genetically engineered before. All of this work has tremendously expanded the knowledgebase and tools currently accessible for engineering microbes, leading to successful commercialization stories in this field. The two sessions on “Metabolic engineering of fuels and chemicals” will focus on current applications of metabolic engineering to the production of fuels, commodity chemicals, and fine chemicals. The sessions will also highlight novel pathway engineering approaches, industrial successes, and the challenges that currently limit the field.
