Novel approaches for the production of fuels and chemicals in Escherichia coli
Volatility of oil prices along with major concerns about climate change, oil supply security and depleting reserves have sparked renewed interest in the production of biofuels and biochemicals. While the carbohydrate portion ...
Fermentative utilization of glycerol and lignocellulosic sugars and production of ethanol by Paenibacillus macerans
With the recent volatility in crude oil prices and widespread concern regarding global warming, there is increased need for finding sustainable alternatives to petrochemical based fuels. One way to achieve this objective ...
Systems biology approaches in metabolic engineering: hasrnessing the potential of proteomics to understand and engineer metabolism
The genomic revolution has powered the development of numerous genetic sequencing tools, which have contributed to unveiling the genomes of different life forms. This boom has impacted the development of techniques to ...
Kinetic and Stoichiometric Modeling of the Metabolism of Escherichia coli for the Synthesis of Biofuels and Chemicals
This thesis presents the mathematical modeling of two new Escherichia coli platforms with economical potential for the production of biofuels and chemicals, namely glycerol fermentation and the reversal of the β-oxidation ...
Understanding Fermentative Glycerol Metabolism and its Application for the Production of Fuels and Chemicals
Due to its availability, low-price, and higher degree of reduction than lignocellulosic sugars, glycerol has become an attractive carbon source for the production of fuels and reduced chemicals. However, this high degree ...
