Synthetic metabolism and the impact of biotechnology on sustainability
What is the present situation and what challenges lie ahead to realize photobiotechnology with impact?
About Dr. Patrik R. Jones
Patrik R. Jones, Ph.D., is Senior Lecturer in Industrial Biotechnology at the Department of Life Sciences, Imperial College London. A common theme throughout his entire career is the reconstitution or construction of metabolic pathways, from native to synthetic. The group´s focus since 2005 is placed on engineering heterotrophic and photoautotrophic microorganisms for the conversion of renewable substrates (sugar or light and CO2) into chemicals that (i) can immediately be separated from a liquid production process and which are (ii) compatible with the existing infra-structure for storage, distribution and utilization.
