WISB researchers are developing novel SB tools for engineering biosynthetic pathways to generate structurally complex bioactives in microorganisms such as Streptomyces sp. and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Rate control engineering, combined with high-resolution systems analysis, enables us to create highly efficient synthetic pathways.
