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 ...
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 ...
