SHIKIFACTORY100 - Modular cell factories for the production of 100 compounds from the shikimate pathway

Official website:

SHIKIFACTORY100 project aims towards the production of a universe of more than 100 high-added value compounds from the shikimate pathway, a hub in cell metabolism, through the development of an optimized shikimate chassis and the proposal and implementation of novel biosynthetic routes exploring enzyme promiscuity to introduce new pathways for the production of known and newly designed compounds. Here we present the collection of natural and non-natural reactions and compounds as well as known and novel pathways for the production of the target compounds.
