CD Biosynsis provides comprehensive services for plant metabolic engineering to facilitate the cutting-edge research of synthetic biology researchers around the world.
Metabolic engineering is different from simple genetic engineering. In metabolic engineering, the metabolic and cellular systems are considered an entirety, thus allowing manipulation with the efficiency of the entire biological process in mind. Plants are the natural source of numerous chemicals synthesized through a complex network of biosynthetic pathways. Plant metabolic engineering involves the modification of endogenous pathways to redirect enzymatic reactions to improve or retard the production of existing compounds, produce novel compounds, or mediate the degradation of certain substances.
The combination of genetic technologies, engineering principles, and computational tools has enabled synthetic biology to create new life forms and functions. Applications of synthetic biology begin with microorganisms and extend to more complicated systems such as plants. A decisive aspect of synthetic biology and plant metabolic engineering is the design-build-test-learn cycle. Iterative rounds of testing modifications are used to refine hypotheses and develop the best solutions. Significant advances have been made in the engineering of plant metabolism, with a wide range of applications. All the technical improvements will facilitate the rapid development of a wide range of biological products to meet the world's needs for sustainable solutions.

CD Biosynsis provides a portfolio of synthetic biology tools for plant metabolic engineering. Our services include but not limited to the following:
The plant chassis has the natural advantages of fine division and synergy of different organs, making it possible to achieve artificial design of complex functions. CD Biosynsis has extensive experience to help customers select the right plant chassis according to specific needs.
In order to ensure the metabolic flux of complex metabolic pathways in plants is not restricted, it usually requires the simultaneous expression of multiple genes or even entire genes within a pathway. CD Biosynsis provides different strategies for the construction of plant multigene transformation vectors.
Plant secondary metabolites have much more specific functions than primary metabolites. They are also an important source of fine chemicals, such as drugs and dyes. CD Biosynsis provides powerful strategies for metabolic engineering of plant secondary metabolites to improve access to these valuable molecules.
Altering the steps or factors affecting the metabolic pathway can increase the metabolic flux of desired metabolites. CD BioSicences provides customized services for the management and modulation of metabolic flux to meet the specific needs of redirecting flux or diverting whole pathway flux.
