Description The aim of this partnering award was to bring together a consortium of scientists with expertise in photosynthesis, endosymbiosis, synthetic intracellular compartments, cyanobacterial and plastid biology and industrial biotechnology. We have created a multidisciplinary network of reserachers together who have identified specific projects that could be progressed using bioengineering y to address fundamental questions in biology as well as to engineer organisms that will have impact in industrial biotechnology.
Exploitation Route We have identified ways in which organisms might be engineered that could lead to new academic knoeledge as well as the development of novel chassis for industrial biotechnology.
Sectors Agriculture, Food and Drink,Manufacturing, including Industrial Biotechology
