Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side A, room 1464
Sang Yup Lee, Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Dean of KAIST Institutes, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)
Abstract: : Due to our increasing concerns on climate change and other environmental issues, bio-based production of chemicals and materials from renewable non-food resources has been attracting much interest. In this lecture, I will present the general strategies for the bio-based production of chemicals, in particular focusing on systems metabolic engineering as an enabler. Following description on various tools and methods of systems metabolic engineering, I will showcase several example products ranging from fuels, bulk chemicals and also materials.
