Title: "Exploiting low-water lifestyles of environmental bacteria for engineering solid-phase bioprocesses (SETH)".

Research Group: Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology

The central intent of SETH is the generation of a knowledge base, a suite of useful strains and a portfolio of matching genetic technologies for enabling a new type of large-scale industrial and environmental processes mediated by whole bacterial cells but executed under (very) low-water conditions. This endeavor builds on the success of the precedent HELIOS project but goes much beyond by capitalizing on the wealth of biological activities found in desiccation-tolerant bacteria and their repurposing for the design of live catalysts able to work under an unprecedented variety of physicochemical settings.

Total amount: 370.000 €.
