Programming bacterial metabolism for the valorization of plastic wastes (ProgStrain):

21st national competition for scientific and technical research

Food security and biotechnology

Senior Researcher : Sergio Bordel Velasco

Research Centre or Institution : Universidad de Valladolid


This project aims at developing a bacterial strain (Paracuccus denitrificans), capable of using wastes of a different polyesters as feedstocks to produce chemicals of high added value. Using a system based in the CRISPR technology the developed strain should be able to direct its metabolic fluxes towards any product of interest by transforming it with a single plasmid, which will be designed specifically to obtain any target product desired.
