MERIT: Diterpenoid production from sunlight

We are going to design, optimize and scale-up diterpenoid production by microalgae. In this project we welcome students with different backgrounds: from understanding cellular biology to designing large-scale production processes.

In MERIT, we convert sunlight into industrially relevant compounds. Our goal is to design, optimize and scale-up diterpenoid production by microalgae. The working strains are provided by our partners and our expertise is the challenge of designing efficient and sustainable processes.
