Our research focuses on advancing gas fermentation technologies through its integration with systems and synthetic biology. We aim to accelerate the understanding and engineering of acetogen metabolism by establishing a state-of-the-art gas fermentation facility and further advancing the cutting-edge systems biology platform (Valgepea et al. 2017, Cell Systems; Valgepea et al. 2017, Metabolic Engineering; Valgepea et al. 2018, Biotechnology for Biofuels) recently established by Group Leader Dr. Kaspar Valgepea. This will guide rational metabolic engineering of superior cell factories through synthetic biology for sustainable production of fuels and chemicals from waste feedstocks (e.g. bioplastics from waste; Lemgruber, Valgepea et al. 2019, Metabolic Engineering).
