Marisa Santos Defends PhD Thesis in Bioengineering

Marisa Santos Defends PhD Thesis in Bioengineering | iBB | Scoop.it
Marisa Andreia Viegas dos Santos will be defending her Ph D thesis in Bioengineering (MIT Portugal program) at Instituto Superior Técnico, thursday the 24th july 2017 (10:30 H, room PA.3). During the last years, and under the supervision of Frederico Ferreira from BERG-iBB, Marisa focused her efforts on the use of the yeast Moesziomyces antarcticus as a cell factory for the biosynthesis of surface active glycolipids of the mannosylerythritol class. The title of Marisa's thesis is “Mannosylerythritol lipids bioproduction by Moesziomyces antarcticus: Sequential stages approach”.

iBB/MIT Reaserchers Develop a New High-Plasmid Producer E. coli Strain

iBB/MIT Reaserchers Develop a New High-Plasmid Producer E. coli Strain | iBB | Scoop.it

Researchers from BERG-iBB and the Prather lab at MIT developed a pgi gene knockout E. coli strain with the specific goal of producing large amounts of plasmid DNA vectors. The new strain was tested by Nature Technology Corporation in the US, yielding 2100-2200 mg plasmid DNA per L in 14 L bioreactors. The strain may be usefull in the large scale production of plasmid-based gene transfer vectors with application in  gene therapy, DNA vaccination and recombinant protein production by transient transfection. The research was developed under the framework of the MIT-Portugal program and is a direct result of Geisa Gonçalves (in the photo) Ph D. thesis in Bioengineering.
