Gene overexpression is a fundamental tool in synthetic biology that allows for the efficient production of proteins for a wide range of applications, including biopharmaceuticals, industrial enzymes, and biofuels. Here in CD Biosynsis, we explore the role of gene overexpression in strain engineering from a synthetic biology perspective and how we can help in optimizing gene overexpression for diverse applications.
The ability to overexpress genes in microorganisms has revolutionized the field of synthetic biology. Gene overexpression involves the production of large quantities of target proteins by increasing the transcription and translation of the gene of interest. This technique has been applied in the engineering of microorganisms to produce a wide range of products, including biofuels, chemicals, and biopharmaceuticals.
Strain engineering, on the other hand, involves modifying microorganisms to improve their performance in various processes. This can be achieved by introducing genetic modifications that result in improved growth, productivity, and stability.
