Last 2-4 November, CSIC participated at the 6th Congress of Applied Synthetic Biology in Europe.
An important opportunity to show the last results about BioSFerA through the presentation of a poster entitled “Lipase overexpression in Yarrowia lipolytica for direct biofuel production“. It describes the research work led by our partner CSIC in the framework of the project: final goal is to build a Y. lipolytica obese strain expressing a robust lipase for the in situ production of biodiesel. The engineered strain will be able to produce TAGs from glycerol and to produce a lipase (either intracellularly or surface displayed), which after cell lysis with organic solvent and methanol will perform the direct transesterification of TAGs into FAMEs (biodiesel).
