Development of microbial production platforms for plant polyphenols

Mattheos Koffas Polyphenols 2018Prof. Mattheos Koffas from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA will talk about the "Development of microbial production platforms for plant polyphenols" during the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Bonn Polyphenols 2018 which will be held at the University of Bonn, Germany in September 26-28, 2018.

According to Prof. Mattheos Koffas: "In the past 15 years, we have applied metabolic engineering towards the development of robust and efficient microbial production platforms for the production of plant polyphenols. We will present a number of examples where single hosts have been optimized for the production of various flavonoids starting from intermediates such as phenylpropanoic acids and flavanones, using stoichiometric-based modeling and metabolic pathway balancing. We will then present examples of using co-cultures involving such individual strains for the de novo production optimization of various flavonoids from glucose."
