Metabolic Pathway Synthesis

Since the renaissance of synthetic biology in 2000, the research of high value-added natural product metabolic engineering combining with synthetic biology has become one of the most promising fields. In 2003, Jay Keasling’s team firstly reconstructed and accomplished the functional verification of the artemisinin biosynthetic pathway in E.coli. Over the next 10 years, Keasling’s team successfully streamlined the process of host selection, optimization, and industrialization. The synthesis and construction of metabolic pathways along with the necessary assembly techniques play a fundamental supporting role in this kind of research.
