BioPort member Silke Claus strengthened her bioinformatics skills and explored the transportome of the biosurfactant producing yeast Starmerella bombicola. This resulted in interesting finding published in BMC Genomics. Read more here (click on the topic to access the link).
Together with his BioPort colleagues, Liam Richard Jenkins Sánchez wrote an inspiring review. Check out “Force in numbers: high-throughput screening approaches to unlock microbial transport” here. (Click on the post to access the link).
Thanks to BioPort member Liv Muth who is involved in assessing higher educational institutes, we wrote the review “A toolbox for digitally enhanced teaching in synthetic biology“. Get inspired!
Will you be our new colleague? We are looking for a talented PhD-student to join our team. Find out more here soon. Deadline for applying is November 5th 2021.
After writing an innovative project proposal and being selected for the oral defense, Liam’s efforts paid off and he was awarded with an FWO SB scholarship to continue his research on aquaporins at BioPort for another four years. Congratulations!
Liv applied for a Strategic Research scholarship from the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) and this was granted last week. BioPort is happy to have Liv in the team for the next four years!
BioPort member Silke Claus gave a presentation with the title “Exploring the transportome of the biosurfactant producer Starmerella bombicola” at the Small Meeting for Yeast Transport and Energetics (SMYTE) in Nove Hrady, Czech Republic. Find out more on this past… Continue Reading →
BioPort’s research paper “Redirecting the lipid metabolism of the yeast Starmerella bombicola from glycolipid to fatty acid production” was published in the Journal of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology, and can now be consulted online. Part of the work was also… Continue Reading →
As we could not find a nice review covering transport of hydrophobic compounds in yeast, we decided to write one ourselves. Silke Claus is the first author of this highly appreciated work. Read our manuscript “Protein-facilitated transport of hydrophobic molecules… Continue Reading →
