Impact of systems biology on metabolic engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae


, : Impact of systems biology on metabolic engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Fems Yeast Research 8(1): 122-131

Industrial biotechnology is a rapidly growing field. With the increasing shift towards a bio-based economy, there is rising demand for developing efficient cell factories that can produce fuels, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, materials, nutraceuticals, and even food ingredients. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is extremely well suited for this objective. As one of the most intensely studied eukaryotic model organisms, a rich density of knowledge detailing its genetics, biochemistry, physiology, and large-scale fermentation performance can be capitalized upon to enable a substantial increase in the industrial application of this yeast. Developments in genomics and high-throughput systems biology tools are enhancing one's ability to rapidly characterize cellular behaviour, which is valuable in the field of metabolic engineering where strain characterization is often the bottleneck in strain development programmes. Here, the impact of systems biology on metabolic engineering is reviewed and perspectives on the role of systems biology in the design of cell factories are given.

Lamellar ichthyosis (LI) is an autosomal recessive disorder of cornification. Mutations in the transglutaminase 1 gene (TGM1) have been identified in several families with this disorder. We analyzed two unrelated families with offspring affected w...

During winter when the active layer of Arctic and alpine soils is below 0 degrees C, soil microbes are alive but metabolizing slowly, presumably in contact with unfrozen water. This unfrozen water is at the same negative chemical potential as the...
