ERA Chair in Synthetic Biology (SynBioTEC) together with their collaborators from UNICAMP, Brazil, and Chalmers, Sweden, published a research paper in Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology. The paper describes lipid and carotenoid accumulation in a non-conventional yeast Roduthorula toruloides on three different carbon sources and four C/N ratios, where metabolic bottlenecks […]
ERA Chair of SynBioTEC Petri Lahtvee became a member of the Editorial Board for the journal FEMS Yeast Research. The leading journal in its field, FEMS Yeast Research bridges the gap between pure and applied research on conventional and non-conventional yeasts and yeast-like organisms. FEMS Yeast Research aims to ensure efficient publication of […]

We are glad that another COST Action with our participation on NON-CONVENTIONAL YEASTS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF BIOPRODUCTS received funding. We are looking forward for the collaboration.
FEBS3+ is a FEBS supported regional conference, where at least 3 geographically close member states have to participate. In 2019 FEBS3+ conference will be held in Riga and organized together with Lithuanian and Estonian Biochemical societies. SynBioTEC ERA Chair Petri Lahtvee was giving a talk and introduced the advances in […]
Dainis Ivanovs from the Scinece and Technology program and Martin Põhjakivi from the Informatics program defended their Bachelor degree with the thesis work developed in SynBio group. Congrats to both of you!
Tobias Butelmann, a visiting student from Würzburg University in Germany, defended his Master’s degree on a topic developed in SynBio – 3D Printing of Yeast-laden Hydrogels for Improved Bioprocess Efficiencies. Congratulations, Tobi!
The Advanced Course on Metabolic Engineering and Systems Biology, taking place on August 25-29, 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden, is organized by the Systems and Synthetic Biology division at Chalmers University of Technology, and is intended for PhD students, postdocs and industrial researchers that are interested in computational aspects of metabolic engineering. The aim […]
