Quantitative Engineering of Industrial Yeast

A thorough, systems-level understanding of bacterial metabolism, gene regulation, and stress response will help elucidate principles to help rationally engineer bacteria, including Z. mobilis, for improved biofuel production from lignocellulosic sources. This program uses automated sample preparation and automated, high-throughput microbial experiments for these studies, applying them to key organisms, starting with Zymomonas mobilis.
