KEY WORDS: Synthetic Biology, Metabolic Engineering, Genome Editing, Protein Engineering, Biocatalysis and Biotransformation, Asymmetic synthesis, Cascade Biotransformation.

Our group aims to develop green, sustainable, and cost-effective biosynthesis of high-value pharmaceutical intermediates, fragrance and flavors, and fine chemicals from renewable feedstocks. By employing synthetic biology and metabolic engineering principles, our group focuses on engineering and devising efficient microbial cell factory for chemical productions. More specifically, it aims to a) develop pathway reconstruction technology and cascade biotransformation; b) dynamically regulate the pathway activity via synthetic genetic circuits; and c) develop high-throughput screening approaches for directed evolution of substrate specificity and enantioselectivity of key enzymes involved in the downstream cascade biotransformation.
