PROJET RESET (2015 > 2018)

Objectives:

> Implementing a new and artificial biosynthetic pathway of terpenes that could be used in fermentation (in vivo) and bioconversion (in vitro)

> Searching for genes that code for kinases that affect different kinds of alcohols and alcohol-phosphates

> Using these genes coding for kinases to implement a biosynthetic pathway in a microorganism. This would aim at biosynthesising target compounds such as prenylated aromatic compounds or sesquiterpene hydrocarbons.

> Using so-called kinases to produce through bioconversion targets such as prenylated aromatic compounds or rubber with a high molar mass.
