(leader researcher Agris Pentjuss)
Metabolic engineering is a research direction where we collaborate with the Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology of University of Latvia (prof. Uldis Kalnenieks) and prof. Daviad A. Fell (Oxford Brookes University, UK). So far we have mostly concentrated on the modeling of Zymomonas mobilis (both stoichiometric and dynamic models) but the scope will be extended.
Important experience was collected by Agris Pentjuss during his stay at David Fell group in Oxford-Brookes in 2013.
