Metabolic engineering is the field that develops and improves these microbial cell factories, or biocatalysts. For sustainable production to be economically feasible requires optimization, but the complexity of biocatalysts makes it non-trivial how this optimization can be achieved. Meanwhile, significant progress in omics data acquisition now allows to quantitatively document the physiological and regulatory state of an organism, while computational methods have been developed that can <em>in silico</em> simulate the biocatalysts phenotype. In this lecture will be discussed how these advances allow for computer-aided design of efficient microbial cell factories.<br /></div> Johanson, Industrial Biotechnology<p>KA, lecture hall, Kemigården 4, Kemi &amp; online</p><p>​“Characterization of respiratory physiology and development of stress tolerance in Lactococcus lactis for high yield production of robust high performance starter cultures”</p>​Faculty opponent: Prof. Bas Teusink, System Biology Lab, AIMMS, VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands<br /><br />Supervisor: Associate professor Carl Johan Franzén, Chalmers<br /><div>Examiner: Prof. Lisbeth Olsson, Chalmers</div> <br /> Öz, Chemical Biology<p>TBA</p><p>​​“Nanofluidics for static and dynamic DNA-protein interaction studies - Repair of double-standed breaks from a single-molecule perspective”</p>​Faculty opponent: Professor Erwin J.
