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 ...
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 ...
