    Conference: Cell Factories and Biosustainability

    Rapid development of novel cell factories is currently a main barrier for advancing towards sustainable production of chemicals, materials, and pharmaceuticals. Advancement in computational and experimental methods for detailed phenotypic characterization of cell factories offer the opportunity to significantly reduce the cost and development time for establishment of novel bioprocesses. At this conference there will be presentations of state-of-the-art technologies that can accelerate cell factory development, including tools for rapid genome editing, computational identification of metabolic engineering targets, and detailed phenotypic characterization.
