Homologous overexpression of hydrogenase and glycerol dehydrogenase in Clostridium pasteurianum to enhance hydrogen production from crude glycerol (2019)
Journal Article
Sarma, S., Ortega, D., Minton, N. P., Dubey, V. K., & Moholkar, V. S. (2019). Homologous overexpression of hydrogenase and glycerol dehydrogenase in Clostridium pasteurianum to enhance hydrogen production from crude glycerol. Bioresource Technology, 284, 168-177. doi:10.1016/j.biortech.2019.03.074

This study reports engineering of a hypertransformable variant of C. pasteurianum for bioconversion of glycerol into hydrogen (H2). A functional glycerol-triggered hydrogen pathway was engineered based on two approaches: (1) increasing product yield... Read More

Gsmodutils: a python based framework for test-driven genome scale metabolic model development (2019)
Journal Article
Gilbert, J., Pearcy, N., Norman, R., Millat, T., Winzer, K., King, J., …Twycross, J. (2019). Gsmodutils: a python based framework for test-driven genome scale metabolic model development. Bioinformatics, doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btz088

Motivation Genome scale metabolic models (GSMMs) are increasingly important for systems biology and metabolic engineering research as they are capable of simulating complex steady-state behaviour. Constraints based models of this form can include th... Read More
