Filamentous fungi cell factories for green biomanufacturing

The researchers focus on the technological upgrading of production processes of important chemicals, including pharmaceuticals, pesticides and bio-based chemicals. Through synthetic biology strategies, we have developed more efficient, economical and greener production technique in cooperation with Big Pharma.

(1) Established the first microbial fermentation production line of the novel nematocide F606;

(2) Created a microbial cell factory that can efficiently synthesize plant-derived fungicide physcion;

(3) Developed a simpler biosynthetic production process for the lipid-lowering drug simvastatin.
