Protein-Based Biosensor Engineering




Greater Copenhagen area

Our ability to rewire cellular metabolism for the sustainable production of chemicals based on microbial cell factories has advanced rapidly during the last two decades.
The speed and precision by which microbial genomes can be engineered now allow for more advanced designs to be implemented and tested. However, the methods developed for testing the performance of newly engineered cell factories are lagging far behind, which consequently impacts the overall bio-manufacturing process.

At Synthetic Biology Tools for Yeast (SBTY), among other things, we engineer protein-based biosensors to be employed in yeast cell factories in order to improve the screening of best performing strain designs.

At SBTY you will learn:
  • Flow cytometry/cell sorting
  • Advanced molecular biology techniques
  • Protein engineering
  • HPLC analysis

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
