The Systems Environmental Microbiology (SEM) group is part of the Department of Sustainable Chemicals at the Novo Nordic Center for Biosustainability at the DTU. We are exploiting the unique metabolic and physiological characteristics of Pseudomonas putida and other environmental bacteria for metabolic engineering. Supported by cutting-edge synthetic biology approaches, our main goal is to push the boundaries of bacterial metabolism towards the sustainable bioproduction of novel, added-value chemicals. The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability (DTU Biosustain) Recent progress in our ability to read and write genomic code, combined with advances in automation, analytics and data science, has fundamentally changed the scope and ambition of harnessing the potential of biological systems. Big data approaches and analysis of biological systems are key research instruments at the Center. DTU Biosustain utilizes these advances for microbial cell factory design to foster sustainable lifestyles in relation to three application areas: Sustainable Chemicals, Natural Products, and Microbial Foods.
