    • Engineering a novel pathway for isoprenoid synthesis 

      Chatzivasileiou, Alkiviadis Orfefs. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
      Isoprenoids comprise a large class of chemicals, of significant interest due to their diverse properties. Most isoprenoids are plant secondary metabolites and are of commercial importance due to their varied applications ...
    • Biosensor-based strategies for improving pathway production in Escherichia coli 

      Doong, Stephanie J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
      Microbial production of chemicals and fuels is an attractive renewable alternative to petroleum-based processes. D-glucaric acid, a Department of Energy top value-added chemical from biomass, is a precursor to polymers ...
    • Methodologies for the mechanistic study of compartment-specific hydrogen peroxide perturbations 

      Stein, Kassi Taylor. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
      Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are an interesting class of molecules because of their ability to promote contradictory phenotypes depending on their intracellular concentration. Most significantly, their elevation has been ...
