Research article published from the ERA Chair and collaborators in Frontiers in Microbiology

Research article from the ERA Chair and collaborators from The University of Queensland, Australia and LanzaTech (following the preprint) published in Frontiers in Microbiology identifies a protein that activites transcription from a new promoter motif associated with essential genes for autotrophic growth in acetogens. The authors combined high-throughput –omics technologies, bioinformatics, and molecular biology methods to advance the fundamental understanding of transcriptional regulation of C1 fixation in acetogens and provide a strategy for improving the performance of gas-fermenting bacteria by genetic engineering.
