This research team is developing retro-synthesis methods to design and build new metabolic pathways. Retro-synthesis consists of determining a set of exogenous genes, which once inserted into a host organism produce a target compound. This method is applied to engineer cellular factories for added value chemicals and to develop whole cell biosensors.
