Aktuelle Forschungsthemen

During my PhD study, we produced the industrially-relevant odorant indole by debottlenecking regulatory networks and identifying target genes in Corynebacterium glutamicum. Additionally, heterologous pathway introduction and product sequestering were performed. We also constructed a serine-activated biosensor to allow an on-demand conversion of serine and indole derivatives to their corresponding tryptophan derivatives.
