João Heitor Colombelli Manfrão Netto

Postdoc

João Heitor joined the Division of Industrial Biotechnology in May 2021 as a postdoctoral researcher. His research interests include engineering of microbial cell factories for bio-based production of chemicals, biopolymers and materials from renewable resources. The aim of his project at Chalmers is apply CRISPR/Cas9 technology to develop xylanolytic Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains. The strains will be used to produce light-weight materials using cellulosic biomass as raw material, representing a novel eco-friendly route to obtain these materials.
