Main Research Lines / Participation in SusPlast:

  • Metabolic modeling and characterization of acidogenic bacteria and yeasts
  • Microbial production of difunctionalized compounds (e.g. dicarboxylic acids) as precursors of biodegradable polymers
  • Design and improvement of cultivation strategies (e.g. nutritional) for the synthesis of production intermediaries (e.g. short and medium chain length organic acids) of industrial interest
  • Selection, modeling and evaluation of microorganisms producing new materials
