Aims and scope

Microbial Cell Factories is an open access peer-reviewed journal that covers any topic related to the development, use and investigation of microbial cells as producers of recombinant proteins and natural products, or as catalyzers of biological transformations of industrial interest. Microbial Cell Factories is the world leading, primary research journal fully focusing on Applied Microbiology.

SWITCH: a dynamic CRISPR tool for genome engineering and metabolic pathway control for cell factory construction in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Strain development for bioproduction in yeast is multi-step and time consuming, so a CRISPR/Cas 9 technology is applied (SWITCH) to speed up cell factory construction. In a proof of concept, five genes are inserted into a SWITCH strain to produce narigenin, a flavonoid that possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Read more
