FWF - Cyano Biotrans - Cyanobacterial Biotransformations

Project: Research project

Description

The project investigates the effect of synthetically useful reactions on the energy metabolism in cyanobacteria. Focus lies on the understanding, how the cells adapt to stress caused by the reactions. This includes the formation of oxygen radicals by their own photosynthesis. A second risk is the depletion of the energy supply by the biotechnological process as additional consumer. The project studies the genetic adaptation of the cells to the conditions of the catalytic process. Then we will investigate strategies to achieve a balance between photosynthetic energy supply and consumption by catalytic reactions.
