Plasma mutagenesis

Microbial cells are of special significance for biotechnological applications, where bacteria and yeasts are used for many biotechnological tasks, including biofuel production, synthesis of commodity chemicals, and production of industrial and biopharmaceutical proteins.Mutagenesis is an important technique in microbial engineering whereby DNA mutations are deliberately introduced into the microorganism to produce mutant genes, proteins, and strains of bacteria. For example, the mutated gene may produce a mutated protein the properties of which, e.g. its thermostability, optimum pH and specific activity, …

Plasma catalysis

Plasma catalysis is a rapidly emerging multidisciplinary field at the interface of catalysis, nanotechnology, physical chemistry, materials and plasma science. Relevant applications include plasma-assisted catalytic reforming of gas mixtures into fuels, chemicals and synthesis of functional nanomaterials.While the physical properties and reactive chemistry of atmospheric-pressure plasmas (APPs) are relatively well understood, little is known about the mechanisms of the APP interactions with the nanometer-size features on the surface of catalyst nanoparticles (NPs). These mechanisms are crucial to explain the effects …

Metabolic engineering of a methanotrophic bacterium for the production of high-value compounds

Methane and methanol are ideal growth substrate for industrial fermentation processes because they are ubiquitous and cheap waste products. However, there are only limited genetic tools for the modification of methanotrophic bacteria, hindering their exploitation as industrial production strains.
