On Friday 18th of february, our three freshly started PhD students gave a seminar to introduce their working plans.
- Alina Reķena – Advanced modeling approaches in yeast
The presentation introduced basic principles of constraint-based modeling together with advanced modeling techniques, such as proteome allocation and thermodynamics-based constraints. Current project is focused on model development for non-conventional yeast Rhodotorula toruloides.
2. Gabriel Luz Chaves – Engineering R. toruloides for improved lipid production
In this seminar was discussed the use of non-conventional yeast, R. toruloides, for the production of lipids and the application of synthetic biology tools for strain improvement.
3. Henrique Sepulveda – Development of 3D printed engineered living materials for growth-decoupled biochemicals production
The topics of 3D printing and engineered living materials for biochemicals production was introduced in this seminar. Followed by a talk about our current research goals for the Ph.D. Project.
