Metabolic Pathway Engineering: Methods in Molecular Biology, Volume 2096

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Modern microbial and enzyme engineering and their advancement are increasingly dependent on the marriage of a wide range of sophisticated technologies. For students entering the field of biotechnology, the outlook is indeed daunting. Expertise at levels beyond that of simple familiarity will be needed to conduct competitive research. It goes without saying that to be competitive, all new researchers in this field will need basic preparation in molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics. Further, experience working with concepts and experimental tools in enzyme biochemistry and kinetics, gene editing, computational metabolic pathway modeling, experimental pathway flux analysis, and computational clustering tools to process complex data sets will be vital for success. We speculate that most biotechnology researchers in early career at this time will build teams of collaborators to address these disparate science fields rather than attempt to become experts in one lab.
