E. coli engineered to fully exploit cellulosic sugars to produce muconic acid [Full subscriber]

researchers at Kobe University, Japan have developed .a new strategy called Parallel Metabolic Pathway Engineering (PMPE), allowing them to fully exploit both sugars for target chemical production and microbe propagation. They used this approach to alter E. coli bacteria in order to successfully boost the production of the nylon precursor muconic acid.…
