TUD leads WP3 (Constructing Synthetic Metabolic Networks).
CHASSY an excellent match with the core expertise of the two PI’s. Jean-Marc Daran is an expert in yeast molecular genetics, genomics and synthetic biology, while Jack Pronk specializes in microbial physiology, metabolic and evolutionary engineering. The infrastructure at TUD fully supports the proposed activities in controlled bioreactor cultivation, genomics and molecular/synthetic biology. TUD will participate in all scientific workpackages. Their major contributions are…More...
The CHASSY Team at TUD:
ORCID ID: orcid.org/0000-0003-3136-8193
Dr Daran’s research aims to understand metabolism and its regulation in industrial microorganisms, with a focus on yeasts. His current interests include genomics of hybrid yeasts, expanding the yeast genetic engineering toolbox for construction of complex pathways leading to plant metabolites, aroma compounds and advanced biofuels.
