  1. International Metabolic Engineering Society (IMES)

    Organizational Entity

    The International Metabolic Engineering Society (IMES) seeks to promote and advance metabolic engineering as an enabling science for bio-based production of materials, pharmaceuticals, food ingredients, chemicals and fuels.

  2. Metabolic Engineering of Bacteria for Production of Oleochemicals

    Webinar

    This talk describes pathways for producing high-value commodity chemicals derived from fatty-acids and how we have combined synthetic biology and systems biology to improve oleochemical production in bacteria using sustainable feedstocks. I describe my group’s efforts to engineer artificial...

  3. In Silico Design Tools for Engineering Microbial Biocatalysts

    Webinar

    Choosing from the great variety of computational tools now being utilized in the metabolic engineering field can be challenging. You need a computational tool that is able to account qualitatively and quantitatively for a wide range of different data types relevant to biological systems. This webinar provides a practical overview to help understand the various in silico design tools for engineering microbial biocatalysts.

  4. A Personal Perspective on Biotechnology's Progress in a Golden Era (and how Jay Bailey saw it all coming)

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2014)

    Much has changed in biotechnology over the last few decades, but much has remained the same. As a graduate student in Jay Bailey’s research group in the early 1980s, I was introduced to a field undergoing vibrant expansion and mentored by one of its most influential and visionary thinkers. As...

  5. Cellulose Reducing Ends Have No Impact on Cellulose Biological Conversion with T. Reesei Cellulase

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2014)

    Trichoderma reesei derived cellulase cocktail is comprised of several cellobiohydrolases (Cel 7A or CBH I; Cel6A or CBH II) and endoglucanases (EG I through V). Earlier studies showed that the two cellobiohydrolases CBH I and CBH II act preferably from the reducing and non-reducing ends of...

    Conference

    Metabolic Engineering 11 will be held from June 26-30, 2016 at the Awaji Yumebutai International Conference Center and The Westin Awaji Island in Kobe, Japan. The conference is chaired by Akihiko Kondo, Kobe University.

  7. Metabolic Engineering Summit

    Conference

    The Metabolic Engineering Summit is chaired by George Chen, Tsinghua University. It will focus on embodying synthetic biology for the development of sustainable bioprocesses.

  8. Using Systems Biology for Identification of Novel Metabolic Engineering Targets

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (Metabolic Engineering Conference, 2014)

    The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is widely used for production of fuels, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and materials. Through metabolic engineering of this yeast a number of novel new industrial processes have been developed over the last 10 years. Besides its wide industrial use, S. cerevisiae...

  9. Genomatica: 15 Year Journey (and counting)

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (Metabolic Engineering Conference, 2014)

    As a founder and CEO, Christophe Schilling has led Genomatica from a developer of metabolic engineering tools to a position of leadership in biotech processes for the production of major chemicals – with multiple customers, $125 million in equity investments, and numerous awards for their...
