Microbial Biotechnology

Pushing microbes to the limit

Microbial Biotechnology at IBVT harnesses Metabolic Engineering and Systems Biology tools as well as Synthetic Biology approaches to exploit the potential of established and novel microbial systems for Industrial Biotechnology. The three areas are closely interlinked with the aim to generate a quantitative and systemic understanding of the metabolic functions of the microbial platforms Escherichia coli, Vibrio natriegens, Pseudomonas putida, Hydrogenophaga pseudoflava and Corynebacterium glutamicum. Genetic engineering is knowledge-driven and consequently based on metabolomics and supported by modeling approaches to design tailored microbial cell factories for the production of fuels and chemicals.
