TRANSFORMING THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURE WITH SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY

By integrating diverse skills in synthetic biology, computer science and plant physiology, the EU-funded project FutureAgriculture aims to design and implement novel metabolic pathways that increase agricultural productivity. The resulting crops will support higher photosynthetic rate and yield, paving the way for a green revolution.

Every 6 months we carefully curate this newsletter with relevant news and a summary of our achievements.

UPDATES FROM THE PROJECT

We have identified two groups of promising synthetic photorespiration bypasses. The most promising pathways have been tested in vitro and in vivo.

By means of computational design and directed evolution, we have engineered a common module to several pathways: the reduction of glycolate to glycolaldehyde.

The MPI-MP team has developed metabolic sensor strains which link the bacterial growth to the presence of a compound, replacing screening with direct selection.
