Code-engineered new-to-nature microbial cell factories for novel and safety enhanced bio-production (METACODE)
Start date: Dec 1, 2011, End date: Nov 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The concept of METACODE is to preform genetic code engineering in microbial strains with parallel recruitment of novel bio-orthogonal chemistries for mass production of desired protein/peptide based products. In combination with computational and classical chemical synthetic approaches as well as chemo-informatics, enzyme guided evolution, synthetic metabolism, and directed evolution of microbial strains, artificial industrial microbial strains will be designed. This will enable the access to genetically robust and safe strains with added/novel functionalities and topologies from renewable resources. These strains will be characterized with alternative reading of the genetic code (genetic firewall) and with predetermined chemistries (metathesis), as well as necessary robustness for efficient industrial use.
