Metabolic Engineering

Bioprocesses for production of chemicals and fuels using microorganisms are becoming recognized as highly important as processes with low environmental impact. By constructing models based on genome information, I have developed a technology to design metabolism in silico in order to produce the target substance. I am researching methods to experimentally determining the metabolic flux by isotope-labeled compound tracing experiments. Furthermore, in order to create robust cells for the bioprocesses, I am studying how to make them stress resistant by integrating omics information evolutionary engineering, to confer stress tolerance.
