Internship to produce terpenes in microbial chassis with automation

The project IRIS FRAGRANCE incubated in the SHAKER irisprogram at the Genopole and support by the SATT Lutech aims to build a microbial chassis for industrial production of prized flavors and fragrances from the family of ionone molecules. Some of these molecules are sold as mixtures of racemic isomers. It is known that two enantiomers can have completely different scents, therefore a mixture is of compromised quality. Synthetic biology allows to produce enantiopure molecules. Continue reading “Internship to produce terpenes in microbial chassis with automation”
