Systems metabolic engineering for the production of lipids in Yarrowia lipolytica

Biography

After completing two degrees in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering at the University of Salamanca, I obtained a MSc in Microbial Biotechnology at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. I developed my PhD in the field of white biotechnology in the Metabolic Engineering group (Jose Luis Revuelta) at the University of Salamanca. Then I have been visiting researcher in EGE University (Turkey), Ghent University (Belgium), INRA (France), Chalmers University (Sweden) and Tsukuba (Japan). During the last 2 years I have been an AgreenSkills fellow in Paris, in the group of Jean-Marc Nicaud, doing metabolic engineering and synthetic biology to produce high value chemicals and fuels in yeasts. After my AgreenSkills fellowship I obtained a research fellowship to start my own group at Imperial College London.

Abstract

Systems metabolic engineering for the production of lipids in Yarrowia lipolytica

My current research is focused in metabolic engineering of the oleaginous yeast Yarrowia lipolytica to produce fuels and chemicals. My interests deal with the application of the recent advances in synthetic biology and systems metabolic engineering to improve the fitness of Y. lipolytica as a biotechnological chassis.
