Our lab uses state-of-the-art synthetic and systems biology technologies to engineer yeast cells for a vast variety of applications. These include:

  • cell factories for the sustainable production of food ingredients, agrochemicals, biofuels, pharmaceuticals, or nutraceuticals
  • synthetic cell consortia that can be used for alternative food production or tissue engineering
  • efficient protein producers for the manufacturing of protein drugs
  • screening platforms to identify efficient enzymes or biochemical pathways
  • whole-cell biosensors for detection of pathogens and antibiotic resistance
